Bonavita "Hudson" and Babi Italia "Pinehurst" Drop Side Cribs Recalled

Date:
June 9, 2009
Category:
Cribs
Company/Brand:
LaJobi Inc.
The Danger:
The lower spring pins on the footboard and headboard can pop out of the tracks located on the drop side, causing the drop side to detach from the crib. When the drop side detaches, it creates a hazardous gap between the drop side and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers can become entrapped and suffocate or fall from the crib.
Description:
This recall involves about 2,900 Bonavita "Hudson" and Babi Italia "Pinehurst" Drop Side Cribs. The cribs are wood with a metal mattress support and have drop sides and were sold in a variety of finishes including cherry, espresso, natural, and white. Hudson and Pinehurst drop side cribs with production dates from December 2006 through August 2007 are included in the recall. The recalled cribs have the production date, product order (PO) number, item number, and color printed on a label attached to the footboard or headboard.
Sold At:
Babi Italia Pinehurst drop side cribs were sold exclusively by Babies "R" Us. Bonavita Hudson drop side cribs were sold at Baby Basics, Beautiful Beginnings, and Buy Buy Baby stores and children's product stores nationwide for about $300. Cribs were sold from December 2006 through December 2007.
