96,000 cribs sold a Toys "R" Us recalled

Food Borne Diseases Posted on

About 96,000 Jardine cribs sold at Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us were recalled Thursday, the company's third crib recall in a year.


The slats on the seven models of recalled cribs can break, leaving a gap where small children can get trapped or strangled, according to government safety officials.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has received 31 reports of broken slats and two reports of children getting trapped. Ten of the incidents were caused when a child broke the slats from inside the crib.

The Taiwanese company recalled about 320,000 cribs in June 2008 and another 56,450 in January.

The CPSC is currently crafting new rules that aim to make cribs safer and more sturdy. The rule making began last fall and could take at least another year.

The cribs recalled Thursday were sold at Toys "R" Us, Babies "R" Us, KidsWorld and Geoffrey stores around the country, as well as on http://www.babiesrus.com. They were available between September 2005 and April 2009.
