Recall of More Baby Cribs by CPSC to Avoid Strangulation Deaths
Posted on Jan 07, 2009
The Consumer Product Safety Commission on Tuesday announced the voluntary recall of about 56,000 cribs whose wood slats can break, creating a gap that could entrap or strangle a child.
The recall of Jardine cribs, manufactured in China by Jardine Enterprises of Taiwan, is an expansion of a recall of 320,000 cribs last June. The company has received 19 additional reports of broken crib slats, and a 22-month-old child fell through the gap created by a broken slat. No injuries have been reported.
