The bottom rails on the crib sides can separate from the sides when the mattress is in the lowest position, causing the spindles to separate and the mattress to drop. This poses fall and entrapment hazards for young children.
Consumers should stop using these cribs immediately if the mattress is in the lowest position. Consumers should contact ducduc, if the company has not already contacted them, for a free repair kit which includes new crib sides. Ducduc is contacting each customer directly. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for their child, such as a play yard, bassinet or toddler bed, depending on the child's age.
For additional information, contact ducduc at (212) 226-1868 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, or visit the firm's website at www.ducducnyc.com
The manufacturer has received five reports of separated rails. No injuries were reported.
