Reason for recall
The drop-side rails on the crib can malfunction, detach or unexpectedly fall down, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position. 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..The CPSC is aware of nine incidents of the drop-side railing failing or malfunctioning. One child sustained minor abrasions.
What should you do?You should stop using the drop-side crib immediately and contact the company, Yu Wei, for a repair kit. The kit will immobilize the drop-side feature. Until then, you should find an alternate place for your child to sleep.
