Atlanta Injury Attorney Montlick & Associates Shares Important Crib Safety Tips
As of June 28, 2011, it is illegal to make, sell or resell any crib in the US that does not meet tough new federal standards. View the video above from Atlanta Injury Attorney Montlick and Associates to learn more about the ban on drop-side cribs and the new federal regulations that require stronger slats, mattress supports and hardware. Parents should note that while it is not illegal to use older cribs in private homes, for safety reasons, experts are urging parents NOT to use or give away potentially dangerous cribs - particularly crib models that have been recalled by the CPSC. Cribs that comply with the new regulations will be tagged with the code 16 CFR 1219 (for full-size cribs) and 16 CFR 1220 (for compact-size cribs). Although the new standards are in effect as of June 28, 2011, child care centers, and public facilities (such as churches, motels) and crib rental businesses have until December 2012 to comply.
