Madigan criticized federal regulators Wednesday for failing to take aggressive action against Reading, Pennsylvania-based SFCA Incorporated. She says the company distributed Simplicity-made bassinets to Illinois retailers despite a recall of the cribs issued in August by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The commission says a flaw in the crib's structure has caused the strangulation death of at least one baby. Madigan's lawsuit calls for SFCA to recall the cribs. The Associated Press could not reach SFCA or its attorneys. The product safety commission did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
