Federal consumer safety officials are investigating a Simplicity Inc. crib design after local authorities blamed the death of a 4-month-old girl in southwest Missouri on one of the beds.

The Simplicity 4-in-1 wasn’t part of a recall last month of 1 million other baby beds from the company, but the sheriff’s investigator in the case said that the death was caused by the crib’s design.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is investigating. The bassinet model No. 3112DOH6 has Winnie the Pooh decorations. The label says it was made in China for Simplicity.”Our thoughts and prayers are with the family,” said Simplicity spokesman Joe Householder, declining to comment on the design because the case is under investigation.

Sutherland said the infant became pinned between the lower of two horizontal railings and her mattress. Her death was ruled an “accidental positional asphyxiation” by the coroner.

Simplicity recalled 1,000,000 cribs a few weeks ago and 40,000 back in June of this year. SOURCE
