Northbrook, IL—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Status Furniture, of Quebec, Canada have voluntarily recalled about 300 Rosebud drop-side cribs over suffocation and strangulation hazards. The CPSC announced the recall on January 26, 2011.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the drop-side rail hardware on the cribs can break, causing the drop-side to detach from the crib, which created a gap between the rail and the crib mattress. The gap poses a risk of suffocation and strangulation if an infant or toddler became wedged or entrapped in the gap. Also, children can fall out of the crib if the rail falls unexpectedly or detaches from the crib.
The CPSC reported, “This recall includes ‘Rosebud’ cribs manufactured by Status Furniture. The cribs are white or antique white and have plastic drop-side hardware. ‘Status Furniture’ appears on crib labeling on the lower portion of the headboard. Model number ‘910’ appears on the assembly instructions.
Consumers are advised to contact The Land of Nod to receive instruction on how to receive merchandise credit ($599) for the defective crib. The Land of the Nod is also recalling the cribs because Status Furniture went out of business.
For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact The Land of Nod at (800) 933-9904 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or email at [email protected], or visit their website at www.landofnod.com.
