The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Pottery Barn, announced today a voluntary recall of their drop-side cribs due to dangers of entrapment, suffocation and fall hazards. The cribs' drop-sides can detach when hardware breaks, creating a space into which a young child can become entrapped, which can lead to suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.
This recall involves all Pottery Barn Kids drop-side cribs regardless of the model number. Pottery Barn Kids is printed on a label attached to the crib headboard or footboard. Consumers should immediately stop using the cribs and contact Pottery Barn Kids to receive a free fixed-gate conversion kit that will immobilize the drop side.
