Can I Sell My Crib on Craiglist

I know it is against the law to sell the drop side cribs, but when my crib got recalled because it was a drop side, the company sent me the piece to put it up to code and we did. My questions is now can I sell it? I tried to read the laws of which ones can be sold and not but said nothing about fixed cribs.
It is a great sleigh crib that I want to put on craglist but don't want to if I can't! What should I do?

What can I do next?

No and consignment places won't take them either. Here are the CPSC guidlines: http://www.cpsc.gov/onsafety/2011/06/the-new-crib-standar....

It says:
"Is it okay for me as a consumer to resell, donate or give away a crib that does not meet the new crib standards?
A consumer should not resell, donate or give away a crib that does not meet the new crib standards, such as trying to resell the product through an online auction site or donating to a local thrift store. CPSC recommends disassembling the crib before discarding it.

Is the answer different if a piece (“immobilizer”) has been added to my drop-side crib to prevent the side from moving up and down?
Consumers should not sell or give away a drop-side crib that has an added immobilizer because it still will not meet the new crib standards."

Here's what I was able to find online :

"The new standards ban drop-side cribs. But the standards also prohibit the sale, new or used, of all cribs - both drop-side and fixed-side - that are not tested to the new standards by a private laboratory. Because very few cribs that were not originally manufactured to the new standards will ever be tested, the new standards essentially ban all such cribs - drop-side and fixed side. As reported in today’s press, millions of drop-side cribs have been recalled. On the other hand, tens of millions of fixed side cribs manufactured to previous standards have never been recalled, never been found to be unsafe, and now also cannot be sold new or resold used."

If you put it on Craigslist, it might get flagged for removal. You might have better luck selling it to a friend or at a garage sale. Disclose that it was recalled but has been repaired.

You can trade it in at the Babies R Us trade in event...if you need something or someone else needs something.

If YOUR specific crib was recalled, then no you can't sell it. If it were one that was never recalled, but has been fixed, I *think* one can. From all I've read, any recalled drop side crib (fixed or not) can't be legally sold. You may be able to give it away, because I haven't found it to say anything about that.

I am a licensed child care provider. From the information (letter to child care centers/home providers) I have from the National CSPS we are being told that if you own a "fixed" crib that was once recalled or a crib that was never on the recall list these cribs will be included in the recall list at the end of this year (Dec. 31st) and may not be sold, transferred or used in a child care facility.
In my opinion you may sell or transfer your crib legally up to that point. Just be sure to sell it before the end of Dec. 2012.
As a child care provider the state tells us we may use drop side cribs (if they were not recalled) up until Dec. 2012. After that we must switch to new cribs that are not drop side.
