If you bought a Graco drop side crib from Target or any other retailer, you'll want to take it back.

Those cribs and Simplicity full size cribs, which are now off the market, are being recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

At least one child has died from his defective Simplicity crib, and dozens more incidents have been reported to the CPSC.

The commission says the frame bent and the child became wedged between the frame and mattress, suffocating him.

In the Graco cribs, the drop side hardware has been reported to easily break or fail, creating a hazardous gap.

"They bring the crib in, they don't get penalized for it if they don't have a receipt or its over the 90 days...they automatically get to return it," said Michelle Schwartz, an executive team leader with Target in Weston.

The faulty cribs can be returned in exchange for cash or a different crib.
