Over 320,000 baby cribs there were manufactured by Jardine Enterprises have been recalled. The recalled cribs were sold at Babys R Us and Toys R Us stores across the nation from 2002 until May of this year. They have faulty side slats that may break off and create an entrapment hazard for children.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has logged 42 cases in which children were able to break the wooden side slats and spindles of their Jardine cribs. Four children were trapped in the resulting gap, with two of them being injured.
The company is offering a voucher to obtain a replacement crib. The cribs on the recall list are considered unsafe and should no longer be used. The CPSC is trying to move faster on crib recalls before they result in deaths. More information can be found here www.jardinecribrecall.com or by calling the Jardine at 1-800-646-4106.
