It seems the Consumer Product Safety Commission has noticed.
Asked on NBC's "Today" show whether people should abandon such cribs, (the commission chair) said she recommends that. And she said consumers also could order plastic kits from the manufacturer to immobilize crib sides.
"The commission will write regulations in the next few months and we will look at this issue about drop-sides," Tenenbaum said. "But I don't think drop-sides will be a part of cribs in the future."
