Jardine Enterprises has recalled about 56,450 cribs in addition to the 320,000 previously recalled in June 2008. The wooden crib slats can break, creating a gap that can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard.
CPSC has received 19 additional incidents 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. 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.
