LaJobi Inc. of Cranbury, N.J., today recalled around 220,000 drop side cribs sold in the last year due to faulty hardware that allows the drop side to detach from the crib. Children in the crib can then fall into a gap created by this, potentially suffocating or being strangled. They can also fall from the crib to the ground.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and LaJobi have received a total of 99 reports of drop side incidents. One infant suffered a mild concussion.
Consumers should contact LaJobi to receive a free hardware retrofit kit that will immobilize the drop side.
