1 Million Cribs Recalled

It's the largest crib recall in CPSC history, and now the one place parents are told they can safely leave their children without supervision is in question.

In fact, according to Cowles' organization Kids In Danger, 30 children are killed and 1,200 are injured every year in crib accidents.

And while these cribs were made in China, in this case she says China isn't to blame:

"The problem is the design flaws that the U.S. manufacturers designed into the product," Cowles said.
