The cribs fail to meet the federal safety standards for cribs. The four support brackets on the mattress support spring are too long. The brackets prevent the spring from lowering to the full 26-inch minimum height in its lowest position, allowing children inside to crawl over the railing, posing a fall hazard.
The recall involves about 24,000 wooden cribs with the following style names and model numbers:
Majestic Curved Top cribs with model number 9500
Majestic Flat Top cribs with model number 9000
Essex cribs with model number 7100
Brighton/Sussex cribs with model number 9100 and Captiva cribs with model number 5100
Only cribs with manufacture dates between November 1, 2005, and November 1, 2007, are included in the recall. The crib model number is printed on the white label on the bottom inside of the right side rail. The crib manufacture date is printed on either the white label near the model number or on the white label located on the bottom of the headboard. Cribs with a green sticker on the mattress frame are not included in the recall.
Specialty juvenile product stores nationwide from November 2005 through November 2007 for between $400 and $600.
