Child Craft Brand Drop-Side Cribs Recalled

Date:
June 24, 2010
Category:
Cribs
Company/Brand:
Child Craft Industries, Inc. (Child Craft ceased operations in July of 2009 and sold the "Child Craft" name to Foundations Worldwide Inc., of Medina, Ohio.) Foundations Worldwide, Inc. neither manufactured nor sold any of the cribs included in this recall
The Danger:
The drop-side hardware can fail, causing the drop-side to detach from the crib or fall to the dropped position. When the drop side detaches, even partially, it creates a space in which an infant or toddler can become entrapped and suffocate or strangle. Drop side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age related wear and tear. Additionally, when drop-side hardware fails and/or disengages, an infant or toddler can be injured by falling out of the crib.
Description:
This recall involves an unknown number of drop-side Child Craft brand cribs manufactured between 2000 and 2009 with the following model numbers: F10151, F10171, F10181, F10281, F13311, F13761, F16001, F16011, F16131, F16661, F17001, F17701, F17731, F17801, F17811, F20161, F20181, F20191, F21041, F21081, F21091, F26131, F27301, F27771, F31061, F31701, F32901, F33301, F33601, F33801, F33901, F34101 and F35101. "Child Craft" appears on a label on the crib's frame and identifies the place of manufacture as Salem, Indiana or New Salisbury, Indiana.
Sold At:
Babies R Us, Sears, Burlington Coat Factory, Target, and various specialty stores nationwide between January 2000 and July 2009.
What To Do:
Stop using these cribs immediately and find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for your baby. Do not attempt to fix these cribs. Although Foundations Worldwide did not manufacture or sell any of the recalled cribs, it has agreed to provide Child Craft owners with a rebate towards the purchase of a new, fixed-side Child Craft brand crib manufactured by Foundations Worldwide Inc.
