Consumer Product Safety Commission and Pottery Barn Kids Announce Recall of 7,600 Spindle Cribs for Entrapment HazardSep 9, 2005 | www.newsinferno.com
The CPSC and Pottery Barn Kids of San Francisco have announced a recall of approximately 7,600 spinal cribs because the spindles on the crib’s front rail can loosen and detach from the rail, allowing the child to fall from the crib and posing a risk of entrapment.
The spinal cribs were manufactured in Taiwan and sold nationwide at Pottery Barn Kids retail stores, through the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and on PotteryBarnKids.com from January 2004 through July 2005 for between $300 and $500.
Pottery Barn Kids has received six reports of incidents involving spindles detaching from the crib. No injuries have been reported to date.
Consumers should stop using these cribs immediately and contact Pottery Barn Kids to receive a free replacement front rail or a full refund (including shipping).
This recall involves the Spindle Crib, model number 4825402. The product name and model number are printed on a label affixed to the base of the crib. Sold in white, pink and blue, the cribs are made of hardwood and measure 30.5 x 54.5 x 45” high.
