WASHINGTON -- Approximately 22,000 drop-side wood cribs have been recalled by Dream on Me Inc.of Piscataway, NJ.
The recall involves both full-size and portable wood cribs.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the drop-side rail hardware can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib, creating a strangulation and/or suffocation hazard.
CPSC and the firm know of 69 reports of incidents involving these cribs. A 1-year-old boy sustained a scratch to the nose when he became trapped between the mattress support and side rail of his portable crib. An 8-month-old girl sustained a minor injury on her head from exposed plastic hardware inside the portable crib.
The cribs were manufactured in China and sold Toys R Us, Walmart and Target stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com.
Consumers are urged to immediately stop using these cribs and contact the company for a remedy.
