Press Release - Drop Rail Cribs

Local Company Act on Crib Recall

Mid-Coast Maine, June 25. 2010

Over the past five years the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled over 9 million cribs due to strangulation, entrapment issues or injuries. On June 24th another very large crib recall of over 2.2 million cribs was announced. There have been reports of 27 babies using drop rail cribs that have become entrapped and even suffocate, prompting this massive recall. These cribs were manufactured by seven different companies.

Mid-Coast Family Rentals, LLC (MCFR) recently replace all of their drop-rail cribs with non-drop rail cribs in anticipation of this recall. It was a costly expense purchasing all new cribs, but there is no dollar amount you can put on a child's safety. MCFR checks recall lists daily to keep ahead of any safety recalls on their baby equipment. MCRF suggests that if you are currently using a drop rail crib that is listed in this recall, STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY until you have contacted the manufacture and received the free repair kit to immobilize the drop-sides. If you own a business that uses drop rail cribs for your guests of if you sell used baby equipment, please discontinue using/selling these products.

Please contact Jill at MCRF, 207-342-2147 if you need assistance getting these free repair kits or if you have any questions. For more details on this crib recall visit the CPSC's website: www.cpsc.gov .

New Full Size Cribs

We at Mid-Coast Family Rentals are very excited to announce we have purchased all new non-drop side cribs this year.  The decision to purchase brand new non-drop side cribs came as a result of the drop side crib recalls.
We pride ourselves in providing our customers with premium, brand name baby gear.  We rent the same brands and products to our customers that we use with our own 2 young daughters.  Our 2 daughters cribs are not drop side and with all of the products recalls related to drop side cribs we would not use with our children.  That being said, we decided to purchase new cribs for safety and piece of mind.   

After extensive market research on all stationary side cribs available, we choose to purchase a couple different brands to try them out and see which we liked best.  All of our new cribs are JPMA and ASTM certified.

Please feel free to contact us via email or phone with any questions you have regarding Maine baby gear rentals.

New Compact Cribs have arrived!

We are happy to have found some great quality compact cribs to add to our inventory. They arrived yesterday and are beautiful. The cribs are quality, solid construction
Unlike most cribs on the market today and other baby products, our new cribs are commerical tested. Built to withstand the set up and breakdown over a long period of time.

If are you considering a crib rental and feel a full size is too big for your vacation home but want something a little more than a pack n play, we highly recommend our new compact crib.
