The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Shermag, have announced a voluntary recall of Shermag drop-side cribs. drop-side crib recall, are cribs safe, bad cribs, crib recall, eco-friendly cribs, fixed side cribs, recalled baby products, safe cribs Around 2,300 Shermag drop-side cribs in the USA and about 800 in Canada are being recalled because the drop-side rail hardware on the cribs can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib. This creates a hazardous gap between the drop-side rail and the crib mattress that may cause infants and toddlers to become entrapped, posing risks of suffocation and strangulation. Due to the railing falling, children can fall out of the crib unexpectedly. Also, drop-side rail failures can occur due to incorrect assembly or with age-related wear and tear. Right now, CPSC and Shermag are aware of 21 incidents involving drop sides that failed or detached. No injuries have been reported. This recall involves wooden drop-side cribs with hidden drop-side hardware. The cribs were sold in various colors. Model numbers 202647, 211047 and 272547 are included in this recall. The cribs were sold separately and as part of the “City Lights,” “Fairy Tales” and “Dormez Vous” furniture collections. “Shermag” is printed on a tag on the mattress springs. The model numbers can be found on stickers and warning labels on the crib’s headboard or footboard. These cribs were sold at The Land of Nod and other baby specialty stores from September 2004 through December 2008 for between $400 and $800. IF YOU HAVE THIS CRIB: You need to stop using the cribs immediately and contact the firm to request a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop-side. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on the child’s age. Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Shermag at (800) 567-3419 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at http://www.shermag.com.
