Ethan Allen Drop-Side Cribs Recalled

October 22, 2010
Ethan Allen
The Danger:
The crib's drop-side rail hardware can malfunction, detach, or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop-side rail to detach from the crib. When the drop-side rail partially detaches, it creates a space between the drop side and the crib mattress. An infant or toddler's body can become entrapped in the space, which can lead to strangulation and/or suffocation. Additionally, a child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and/or age-related wear and tear.
This recall involves about 3,250 Ethan Allen cribs with the following item numbers: 14-5650, 15-5650, 16-5650, 26-5650, 35-5622, 36-5620, 36-5622, and 38-5622. "Ethan Allen" and the item number are printed on a label on the crib's headboard or footboard. The cribs were sold in a variety of colors.
Sold At:
Ethan Allen stores from January 2002 through December 2008, for between $550 and $900.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the recalled drop-side cribs, and contact any Ethan Allen store to receive a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop-side rail. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard, or toddler bed, depending on the child's age.
