Baby Cribs Recall

Jardine has announced a recall of 56,450 wooden cribs, sold at Babies "R" Us and elsewhere, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The announcement is an expansion of Jardine's June 2008 recall of 320,000 similarly faulty cribs.

The wooden slats in the recalled cribs can break, creating a gap that can trap or strangle a small child. CPSC has received 19 new reports of crib slats breaking since the June 2008 recall. In nine of these incidents, consumers reported that their baby or toddler broke the slat while in the crib. In addition, a 22-month-old child fell through the gap between the crib slats when a slat broke. None of these new incidents involved injuries.

The cribs were sold at KidsWorld, Geoffrey Stores, Toys “R” Us, and Babies “R” Us stores nationwide, and online at, from March 2004 through January 2009 for between $220 and $330. They were made in China.
