SunKids Convertible Cribs Recalled

Date:
April 2, 2009
Category:
Cribs
Company/Brand:
Suntech Enterprises Inc.
The Danger:
The sides of the crib are made of mesh that expands, creating a gap between the side and the crib's mattress if it's not zipped into place, or a gap between the side and an added mattress. A young child can slip into this gap and become entrapped or suffocate. Also the crib's drop side can fail to fully latch, posing a fall hazard to young children.
Description:
This recall involves about 1,900 SunKids convertible crib/playpen/bassinet/beds with model number PY256. "SunKids" is embroidered on the bottom left of the crib's drop side. The convertible cribs have a drop side rail, stationary side rail, canopy assembly, and bassinet. The sides of the convertible crib are fabric and mesh. The mattress support, bassinet, canopy, and bed skirt are covered in fabric. The fabric and the mesh were sold in navy blue, light blue, pink, beige, white, beige checker, and pink heart.
