The government is set to announce a massive crib recall. More than 5 million cribs recalled since the start of 2007.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has revealed they plan to announce a huge crib recall tomorrow.
"There is a crib recall tomorrow, and it's going to be really important for all parents to pay attention," Scott Wolfson, spokesman for the CPSC told CNN. "There is also a larger effort by CPSC to put in mandatory rules to make all cribs safer."
While he did not elaborate, the recall is reportedly of drop-side cribs. Since 2007, more than 5 million cribs, bassinets and play yards have been recalled.
Crib maker Simplicity recalled nearly 400,000 cribs in July, after several children became trapped in the crib and died. In May, nearly 100,000 cribs were recalled by Jardine.
