An additional 56,450 Jardine Cribs have been recalled by Jardine Enterprises, of Taipei, Taiwan. As you may recall, 320,000 units were recalled in June 2008. The wooden crib slats can break, creating a gap, which can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers. CPSC has received 19 additional reports of crib slats breaking. In nine of these incidents, consumers reported that their infant or toddler broke the slat while in the crib. In addition, a 22-month-old child fell through the gap between the crib slats when a slat broke. Thus far no injuries have been reported.
This recall involves three models of Jardine wooden cribs with the date codes identified below. Cribs with other date codes are not affected by this recall. The date code and model number are printed on the label located on the inside of the bottom rail of the headboard or footboard. Jardine Cribs included in this expanded recall are: Model # DA715BC, Dark Pine Olympia Lifetime Crib, with a date code of 2/04 – 1/07; Model # 0108L00, Antique Walnut Capri Single Crib, with a date code of 7/06 – 11/07; and Model # 0308C00, White Capri Lifetime Crib, with a date code of 12/05 – 11/07.
The cribs were sold at KidsWorld, Geoffrey Stores, Toys “R” Us, and Babies “R” Us stores nationwide, and at babiesrus.com, from March 2004 through January 2009 for between $220 and $330. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact Jardine to receive a full credit toward the purchase of a new crib. Jardine will provide consumers with detailed instructions for purchasing cribs in retail stores and online.
