US Consumer Products Safety Commission and Playkids is recalling convertible cribs made in China.
The sides of the convertible crib are made of a mesh that expands, creating a gap between the mattress and the side through which an infant can slip. This poses suffocation and entrapment hazards for young children. It already resulted to one death in Brooklyn NY last August.
The convertible cribs, which were made in China, were sold in juvenile product retailers in New York from March 2007 through September 2008 for about $100.
Consumers should stop using the recalled convertible cribs immediately and contact Playkids USA to receive a full refund.
For additional information, consumers should contact Playkids USA collect at (718) 797-0302 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.
