Ban on drop-side cribs

Texas - After at least 32 deaths and hundreds of injuries caused by drop-side cribs, Lawmakers are working on a bill to ban them.

The proposal would outlaw the sale and manufacturing of the cribs that have a side rail that moves up and down.

The cribs are being phased out by the industry, and big retailers have taken them off sale floors.

But there are still plenty for sale on the Internet and being used in homes.

The industry says drop-side cribs that haven't been recalled are safe as long as they are assembled and used properly.
