Newport Cribs and Furniture - Product Recall

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 3,000 Newport rubbed black 4-in-1 cribs and matching furniture pieces. The red paint under the black finish paint exceeds the federal lead limits. The manufacturer has received one report of a child ingesting the paint and later being diagnosed with lead poisoning.

The recalled pieces were made in Indonesia for Munire Furniture Inc, of Piscataway, New Jersey and sold at specialty furniture stores nationwide from April 2006 through November 2008 for about $600 for the crib and between $700 and $1,000 for the matching furniture pieces. Additional accessories were sold for about $170.

The recalled cribs and furniture pieces are made of wood and have a rubbed black finish. Only the "Newport Rubbed Black" cribs and matching furniture manufactured in Indonesia between April 2006 and November 2008 are included in this recall. The model number, date, and country of manufacture are printed on the label attached to the side panel of the crib and the date of manufacture is on the back panel of the furniture. The entire list of model numbers and names included in the recall can be found here.

If you have one of the recalled cribs or furniture pieces, you should stop using it immediately and contact Munire Furniture to receive a replacement coupon which will allow you to exchange the product for another free of charge. You can reach them by calling (866) 586-9639 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or by visiting their Web site.
