The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Jardine Enterprises today announced a voluntary recall of 56,540(320,000 units were previously recalled in June 2008) because the wooden crib slats can break, creating a gap, which can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers.
CPSC has received 19 additional incidents of crib slats breaking. In nine of these incidents, consumers reported that their infant or toddler broke the slat while in the crib. In addition, a 22-month-old child fell through the gap between the crib slats when a slat broke. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves three models of Jardine wooden cribs with the date codes identified below. Cribs with other date codes are not affected by this recall. The date code and model number are printed on the label located on the inside of the bottom rail of the headboard or footboard.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact Jardine to receive a full credit toward the purchase of a new crib. Jardine will provide consumers with detailed instructions for purchasing cribs in retail stores and online.
