The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Yu Wei Co. Ltd., of Taipei, Taiwan have announced a voluntary recall 8,000 Yu Wei Drop-Side Cribs.

When this happens, a space is created into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and due to age-related wear and tear. CPSC and Yu Wei are aware of nine incidents involving drop side rails that malfunctioned or detached, including one report of a child who sustained minor abrasions to the arm. This recall involves Yu Wei full-size cribs sold under the Scroll and Lauren model names. Antique white, pecan and dark cherry cribs are all included in the recall. If the following model numbers and date codes are listed on the inside of the crib’s end panels, then they're included in the recall... are cribs safe, bad cribs, crib recall, drop-side crib recall, eco-friendly cribs, fixed side cribs, recalled baby products, safe cribs If you've got one of these cribs you need to immediately stop using it and contact Yu Wei to get a free immobilizer kit that will immobilize the drop side.
