The following recalls were issued April 25 - 29 by federal and state agencies:
Cribs: Simplicity full-size cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames are being recalled. This recall includes fixed-side and drop-side cribs sold nationwide. These cribs pose a risk of serious injury or death due to entrapment, strangulation, suffocation and fall hazards. The crib's tubular metal mattress-support frame can bend or detach and cause part of the mattress to collapse, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged, entrapped or fall out of the crib. This recall involves all Simplicity cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames. Consumers should contact the store where the crib was purchased to receive a refund, replacement crib or store credit.
LaJobi Inc. is recalling Graco®-branded drop side cribs sold February 2007 - March 2010. The drop side hardware 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 and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers can become wedged or entrapped, posing a risk of suffocation and strangulation. This recall involves LaJobi-manufactured Graco® wood cribs. The full size cribs were sold in cherry, espresso, natural and white finishes. The production date, item number, purchase order number and finish name is printed on a label affixed to the footboard or headboard. "LaJobi" and the crib model name are printed on a product sticker located on the stabilizer bar or bottom rail of the crib. Consumers should contact LaJob, www.LaJobi.com, 888-842-2215, to receive a free hardware retrofit kit that will immobilize the drop side.
