My neighbor’s baby daughter became trapped between her crib mattress and the crib side rails. Fortunately, she is my neighbor’s first child, so her mother heard her cries and was there in a flash to free her. Even though her daughter was not injured, my neighbor wants to make sure that other parents who own this crib are aware of the potential for harm. What should she do?

Everyone should be so responsible. There is a website,, where consumers can find out about products that have been recalled, report dangerous products, and learn safety tips. This “one stop shop for U.S. Government recalls” is a joint project of six federal agencies:

  2. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
  3. U.S. Coast Guard
  4. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  5. U.S. Drug Administration
  6. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

There is also a mobile app that you can put on your cell phone so that you can make sure that products you see at a yard sale, in a store, or at a friend’s house are not on the lists of recalls.

Spread the word about this resource because knowing about and using it may prevent many parents from experiencing the tragedy of their child’s injury or death by defective product design or manufacture.
