Government expands crib recall

January 7, 2009 12:23:09 PM PST
Federal regulators have expanded a crib recall that began in June 2008. About 56,400 Jardine Cribs are included in the recall. The June recall included 320,000 units.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the wooden crib slats can break, creating a gap, which can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers.

CPSC has received 19 additional incidents of crib slats breaking. In nine of these incidents, consumers reported that their infant or toddler broke the slat while in the crib. In addition, a 22-month-old child fell through the gap between the crib slats when a slat broke. No injuries have been reported.

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