The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 300 Rosebud drop-side cribs Status Furniture of Quebec, Canada and distributed by The Land of Nod, of Northbrook, Ill.
The drop-side rail hardware on the cribs can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib. When the drop side detaches, a hazardous gap is created between the drop-side rail and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers can become wedged or entrapped, posing risks of suffocation and strangulation. In addition, children can fall out of the crib when the drop-side rail falls unexpectedly or detaches from the crib. Drop-side rail failures can also occur due to incorrect assembly or with age-related wear and tear.
CPSC and The Land of Nod have received 13 reports involving drop-side hardware that has malfunctioned or failed. No injuries have been reported.
The cribs are white or antique white and have plastic drop-side hardware. "Status Furniture" appears on crib labeling on the lower portion of the headboard. Model number "910" appears on the assembly instructions.
The Land of Nod retail stores and online at www.landofnod.com from January 2003 through September 2004 for about $600.
Consumers should stop using these cribs immediatelyand contact The Land of Nod at (800) 933-9904 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or email at email@example.com, or visit the firm’s website at www.landofnod.com
