Angel Line Drop-Side Cribs Recalled

Date:
October 22, 2010
Category:
Cribs
Company/Brand:
Angel Line
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 also can occur due to age-related wear and tear.
Description:
This recall involves about 3,400 Longwood Forest drop-side cribs with plastic drop-side hardware in the following models: 6103S, 6105S, 6106S, 6108S, 6109S, 8025P, and 8029P. They were sold in white, brown, natural, and oak colors. "Longwood Forest" or "Angel Line" and the model number are printed on a label on the crib's headboard. The company's fixed-side cribs and drop-side cribs with metal rod-type hardware are not included in this recall.
Sold At:
On the Internet at Ababy.com, Babyage.com, and other Web retailers from December 2004 through January 2009, for about $140.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the recalled cribs, and contact Angel Line to receive for a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop-side rail. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate and safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard, or toddler bed, depending on the child's age.
