Crib Accident Prevention News - 70,000 Drop Side Cribs Recalled

Posted on Apr 13, 2013

Over 70,000 baby cribs were recalled last month due to a potential for malfunction of the sides.The recall involves drop side cribs, or cribs which allow the sides to slide up and down. The problem with drop side cribs is that repeated re-assembly, whether due to use for multiple siblings in a family or resale, can cause failures of the sides and accompanying hardware. In essence, over time, the hardware may become loose or otherwise fail.

Malfunction of a drop side crib is a very serious risk for two reasons: suffocation and falls. Babies and children can become entrapped and suffocate or they may roll out of the crib. Infants are especially at risk.

The recall involves 14 models of 73,000 PT Domusindo Perdana wooden drop-side crib. They were manufactured in Indonesia by PT Domusindo Perdana and were sold exclusively at JCPenny.com and through the JCPenny catalog from 1998-2008.

Parents and grandparents who own this crib can call Modus Furniture International at (800) 827-2129 to obtain a free immobilizer kit until May 2013.
