(Reuters) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is expected to announce later on Wednesday, a recall of about 600,000 cribs made by Simplicity Inc, The Wall Street Journal said citing a notice.

The recall comes weeks after the CPSC recalled 900,000 Simplicity bassinets, linked to the deaths of two infants.

The cribs affected by the recall notice are Simplicity brand drop-side cribs sold by retailers including Wal-Mart Stores Inc, Target Corp and Babies "R" Us, a unit of Toys "R" Us Inc, the paper said.

The CPSC is expected to say it is aware of nine incidents in which the drop side on the crib has detached, but caused no injuries, the paper said.

Simplicity could not be immediately reached for comment.
