Product recalls are a serious matter. When a company or the government issues a safety recall, it means that the product presents extreme risk for the consumer. Now, while it is a good thing that a recall has been issued, it is not impossible for a few rogue items to remain in the market place. Then, there is also the potential for a number of the products to have already been purchased. That means dangerous products are at use in someone's home.
Under normal circumstances, this would be a dangerous system. When the product is a crib, the dangers increase tenfold. That is because an infant or a toddler cannot protect himself when an accident occurs. That is why defective cribs that present suffocation, entanglement, or other adverse risks must not be used.Contact Our Baby Crib Recall Lawyers Today »
Recently, Delta cribs issues a recall of well over one million cribs. This was in the aftermath of death of two infants. So, this is definitely a serious recall and the potentially defective cribs must be identifies as soon as possible. The way a crib can be clearly identified is through examining the model numbers.
Here is a list of the models that have been recalled:
|4550||4551||4580||4600||4620||4624 (production dates 01/06 thru 11/07)|
|4640||4660||4720||4735||4742||4750 (production dates 01/95 thru 12/00)|
It is possible that more could be added at a later date.
If you have purchased a crib, it is critical to locate the spot on the crib that displays the model number. Once this is done, the numbers o the crib should be matched with the list of recalled model numbers. If a positive match occurs, then use of the crib should be discontinued immediately.
If an accident has already occurred and the crib bears one of these model numbers, then the potential for a liability suit is present. Simply because a company recalls a model does no absolve it from risk. The poor product should never have been released in the marketplace in the first place. As such, the manufacturer may be held liable.
Also, the seller or distributor of the faulty cribs might possibly be liable as well. After all, it is the seller's obligation to be aware of recalls. Not properly complying could be considered contributory negligence. Now, if the seller knew he was selling recalled models and deliberately placed them in the market, then this would be an extremely negligible act. Therefore, a strong case for liability could be developed beyond contributory negligence might be possible.Do You Have A Baby Crib Recall Case? »
