Generation 2 Worldwide SafetyCraft Brand Drop-Side Cribs Recalled

Date:
February 3, 2011
Category:
Cribs
Company/Brand:
Generation 2 Worldwide
The Danger:
The hardware found on the SafetyCraft drop-side cribs can fail and place infants and toddlers at risk of strangulation and suffocation. The crib's plastic drop-side hardware can break, causing the drop side of the crib to detach from a corner of the crib. When the drop side detaches, it creates a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped. When a child is entrapped or wedged between the drop side and the crib mattress, it creates a risk of suffocation or strangulation. Also, the crib's mattress support can detach from the crib frame, creating a hazardous space in which an infant or toddler can become entrapped and suffocate or strangle.
Description:
This recall involves all SafetyCraft drop-side cribs, including model 92-8112, manufactured and/or sold by Generation 2Worldwide. Consumers can identify the Foundations SafetyCraft crib with "Foundations" printed on the mattress' support assembly instructions label under the mattress. The name "SafetyCraft" is on a label affixed to the crib's headboard or footboard. Product labels may identify the place of manufacture as Indonesia or Dothan, Alabama.
