The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with ducduc, today announced a voluntary recall of about 300 Fixed side cribs because the bottom rails on the crib sides can separate from the sides when the mattress is in the lowest position, causing the spindles to separate and the mattress to drop. This poses fall and entrapment hazards for young children.
The manufacturer has received five reports of separated rails. No injuries were reported.
This recall includes ducduc fixed-side cribs with the model names and item codes ending in 2009, 2010 and 2011 listed below. The name”ducduc” and the item code can be found on a label located on the mattress panel.
“X” is the month of manufacture (1 through 12)
Consumers should stop using these cribs immediately if the mattress is in the lowest position. Consumers should contact ducduc, if the company has not already contacted them at (212) 226-1868 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, or visit the firm’s website at www.ducducnyc.com for a free repair kit which includes new crib sides. Ducduc is contacting each customer directly. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for their child, such as a play yard, bassinet or toddler bed, depending on the child’s age.
