Product Recall: Pottery Barn Kids Matelassé Crib Bumpers

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Baby Essentials, Decor

Pottery Barn Kids, of San Francisco, California, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Matelassé Crib Bumpers. The decorative stitching on the bumper's edge can come loose, posing an entanglement hazard to young children. There have been two reports of the stitching coming loose but, thankfully, no injuries have been reported. Ya gotta watch out for that decorative stitching -- it's a conspiracy, I tell ya!

The crib bumpers being recalled are the Diamond, Floral, and Polka Dot Matelassé bumpers. The Diamond bumpers are white with various colored stitching along the scalloped edge while the Floral and Polka Dot versions come in assorted colors with matching stitching. They all have a label marked "Pottery Barn Kids". These bumpers were sold at Pottery Barn Kids stores, in their catalog, and online from February 2003 through June of this year and cost about $90.

Remove these bumpers from your children's cribs immediately and remove any exposed stitching or return them for a refund. For more information, contact Pottery Barn Kids toll-free at (877) 800-9720 between 7 a.m. and 12 a.m. ET daily or visit the firm's Web site.
