Investigation leads to recall of deadly crib

An investigation by the Chicago Tribune prompted the Consumer Product Safety Commission to recall popular cribs sold under the Simplicity and Graco brand names from 1997 to 2008. Maurice Possley of the Tribune found numerous complaints about a drop rail that "can detach from the crib's frame, creating a dangerous gap that has led to the deaths of at least three children." After Possley found a victim's family - two years after the baby's death - the commission sent an investigator to examine the faulty crib and issued a recall three days later.
