The federal government recalled another 170,000 cribs Thursday for a potentially deadly hazard, adding to the list of troubles with drop-side cribs.
The Sorelle or Golden Baby cribs have sides that drop down to give parents easier access to babies. But the drop-side hardware can slip, allowing the side to separate from the tracks and creating a space for babies to suffocate, strangle or fall out of the crib.
More than 5 million drop-side cribs were recalled in 2009 amid similar safety concerns.
