Jardine Cribs - Expanded Product Recall

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

cribBack in June, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Jardine Cribs recalled about 320,000 cribs due to a strangulation hazard. Yesterday, the CPSC announced an additional 56,450 cribs to be included in that recall.

CPSC has received 19 additional reports of incidents where crib slats were broken, nine of them by infants or toddlers while in the crib. In one of those cases, a 22-month-old child fell through the gap made by the broken slat. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported.

The recall involves three models of Jardine wooden cribs with the date codes specified below. Cribs with other date codes are not affected by this recall. You can find the date code and model number printed on the label located on the inside of the bottom rail of the headboard or footboard.
