by in Parenting, Recall, Recalls


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Dream On Me have recalled about 22,000 of their Full-Size and Portable Drop-Side Cribs due to the possibility of the drop-side rail hardware breaking or failing, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib.

So far, the CPSC and Dream On Me have been notified of 69 incidents involving these cribs. The incident occurs when the drop-side rail partially detaches, it creates a space between the drop side and the crib mattress. An infant or toddler’s body can become entrapped in the space, which can lead to strangulation and/or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib.

The cribs being recalled are drop-side wooden cribs, painted or stained in black, cherry, dark brown, natural, white, and pink.

  • Full-Size Cribs: Models 613, 615, 616, 617, 619, 628, and 639 are included in this recall. The model number and “Dream on Me Inc.” are printed on a label located on the inside of one of the end panels. The label lists a manufacture date between January 2006 and December 2009.
  • Portable Cribs: The cribs are smaller than full-size cribs and the ends fold in to facilitate portability. Model numbers 621, 625 and 627 are included in this recall. The model number and “Dream on Me Inc.” are printed on a label located on the mattress board. The label lists a manufacture date between August 2007 and February 2009.

If you have a full-size crib, you will be given a free kit that will immobilize the drop side. Kits will be available beginning June 30, 2011. If you have a portable crib, you can receive a free replacement portable crib with fixed sides. Replacement cribs will be available in mid-July 2011.
