Victory Land Group Drop-Side Cribs Recalled

October 22, 2010
Victory Land Group Inc.
The Danger:
The crib's drop-side rail can malfunction, detach, or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop-side 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 fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to age-related wear and tear.
This recall involves about 34,000 Heritage Collection 3-in-1 drop-side cribs with the following Kmart model numbers: 07-1248 and 07-1252. They were sold in natural and white colors. A label with Kmart and the model number can be found on the inner side of the crib's headboard or footboard on the bottom rail. The 3-in-1 infant cribs can also be converted into a toddler bed and a double bed.
Sold At:
Kmart stores nationwide from February 2007 through October 2008, for about $130.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the cribs, and contact the Victory Land Group for 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. For more information, contact Victory Land Group toll-free at 866-499-2099 between 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit victorylandgroup.com
