Jardine Enterprises has worked with the CPSC to recall 320,000 cribs sold at various stores.
The wooden slats in the cribs can break. This creates a gap that causes a serious strangulation and entrapment hazard for infants.
So far there have been at least 42 reported occurrences of the slats and spindles breaking in these recalled cribs. Several children have already been trapped in the space created by the broken piece of wood, although – thankfully – none suffered from serious injuries other than bruises and abrasions.
These cribs were made in China and Vietnam and sold at various retail locations throughout the United States and other countries. If you have any of the cribs listed below, stop using them immediately and contact Jardine’s hotline to receive full credit toward the purchase of a new crib: 1-800-646-4106.
If any of your crib slats have broken stop using the crib immediately and contact the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to report the incident.
The crib recall includes several models of cribs sold at Babies “R” Us, Kidsworld, Geoffrey Stores, and Toys “R” Us since January of 2002:
