The crib's drop-side rails can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail. When this happens, the drop-side rail can fall out of position and create a space where an infant or toddler can become wedged or entrapped, posing a risk of strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. In addition, drop-side related incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves about 3,900 Rockland Furniture round cribs with model number 343-8314. The model number is printed on a label located on the inner-lower portion of the crib rail. The cribs are 44 1/2 inches in diameter and were sold in white, ebony and cherry finishes.
J.C. Penney stores and online at jcpenney.com from January 2005 to December 2008 for about $400.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact Rockland Furniture for a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop-side rail. Until the crib is repaired, consumers should find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed, depending on the child's age. For more information, contact the company by phone at (877) 967-5770, or visit the firm's website at rocklandimmobilizationkit.com, then click on "Round Crib Recall."
