IMPORTANT SAFETY ADVISORY CONCERNING GRACO BRANDED DROP SIDE CRIBS
On April 29, 2010 the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with LaJobi Inc., announced a voluntary recall of Graco® Branded drop side cribs made by LaJobi. Further information pertaining to the Advisory that was issued in the United States can be found on CPSC’s website at www.cpsc.gov.
The drop side hardware may break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib. When the drop side detaches, a hazardous gap may be created between the drop side and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers may become wedged or entrapped, posing a risk of suffocation and strangulation. In addition, children may fall from the cribs when the drop side detaches or fails to lock.
There have been no incidents reported in Canada.
