More Drop Side Cribs Recalled

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

LaJobi Inc., of Cranbury, N.J. is the latest manufacturer to recall defective drop side cribs. The company has issued two separate recall actions for three models of drop side cribs that pose entrapment and strangulation hazards.

Drop side cribs have been the subject of numerous recalls in the past, many of which occurred after children were injured – and in some cases killed – because of defective cribs. In many cases, problems with drop side cribs occur when hardware fails. The problem is exacerbated because most families use a crib for more than one child. The older the crib, the more likely it is that hardware will wear out and fail.
In April,  Toys ‘R Us had said it was moving to phase out the sale of drop side cribs, and would no longer order them from manufacturers.  A month earlier, at a meeting of the standards organization ASTM International, major crib manufacturers signed on to a proposal that would ban drop side cribs in the U.S. Proposed new rules would require that all four sides of the crib be rigidly attached to one another. Such a design eliminates the moving parts that have broken loose and created entrapment hazards. The regulations would allow a small portion of the top of a crib railing to fold down, so that people who need it would still have easier access to the crib.

The first LaJobi drop side crib recall involves 2000 Bonavita “Cabana” Drop Side Cribs. The wooden crib slats on these drop side cribs can detach or break creating a gap, which can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers.  LaJobi has received 16 incident reports of crib slat failures, including 10 reports of slats falling out of rails and 6 reports of slats breaking. No injuries have been reported. Consumers should contact LaJobi to receive replacement crib side rails.

This recall involves Bonavita “Cabana” wooden drop side cribs with metal mattress supports. The cribs were manufactured from January 2006 through October 2008 and have production dates between 01 JAN 2006 and 31 OCT 2008. The model name, color, product order (PO) number, production date and other crib identifiers are printed on a label located on the inside bottom rail of the headboard or footboard. The cribs were sold in three finishes, antique white, classic cherry and montego brown. Cribs with other production dates are not affected by this recall.  Bonavita “Cabana” cribs were sold at USA Baby, Beautiful Beginnings, Buy Buy Baby and other specialty stores nationwide from January 2006 through May 2009 for about $450.

The second LaJobi drop side crib recall involves 2900 Bonavita “Hudson” and Babi Italia “Pinehurst” cribs.  According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) the lower spring pins on the footboard and headboard can pop out of the tracks located on the drop side, causing the drop side to detach from the crib. When the drop side detaches, it creates a hazardous gap between the drop side and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers can become entrapped and suffocate or fall from cribs.  The CPSC and LaJobi have received a total of 33 reports of drop side detachment due to spring pin failure. In these reports, two children became entrapped and one child fell from cribs. Both entrapped children were freed by caregivers, one child was bruised.

These recalled cribs are wood with a metal mattress support and have drop sides. They were sold in a variety of finishes including cherry, espresso, natural, and white. Hudson and Pinehurst drop side cribs with production dates from December 2006 through August 2007 are included in the recall. The recalled cribs have the production date, product order (PO) number, item number, and color printed on a label attached to the footboard or headboard.

The Babi Italia Pinehurst drop side cribs were sold exclusively by Babies “R” Us. Bonavita Hudson drop side cribs were sold at Baby Basics, Beautiful Beginnings, and Buy Buy Baby stores and children’s product stores nationwide for about $300. Cribs were sold from December 2006 through December 2007.

According to the recall notice, LaJobi will provide professional technicians to perform in-home installations of a free retrofit hardware kit. Consumers should contact LaJobi to register for the free retrofit kit service.
