Jardine Crib Recall Attorneys
Personal Injury Lawyers - Representing People Nationwide
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Jardine Enterprises, of Taipei, Taiwan has recalled about 320,000 baby cribs made in China and Vietnam. The cribs are being recalled because their wooden slats and spindles can break, creating a gap that causes an entrapment and strangulation risk to infants.
Forty-two incidents of breaking crib slats and spindles have been reported. Four children became entrapped in the gap created by these broken parts, and two of them suffered abrasions and bruising.
The cribs were sold nationwide from 2002 to May 2008 at Babies "R" Us, Toys "R" Us, Geoffrey Stores, and Kids World stores, and at babiesrus.com. The recalled Mahogany Positano Lifetime Crib model number 0309K00 sold for $450, and the other recalled cribs sold for $150 – $300.
Cribs recalled include only certain models of the Berkley, Hilton, Positano, Spindle, and Windsor styles. The model numbers can be found inside of the bottom rail of the footboard or headboard and include:
0113B00, 0113K00, 0309K00, 0303B00, 0303C00, 0303G00, BC-007, BC-010, BC-010C, BC-010HP, BC-010W, BC-017, BC-107C, BC-107CR, BC-110C, BC-110HP, BC-110W, BC-23, BC-36B, BC-36G, BC-36P, DA617BC, DA620BC, DA770BC, DV730N, DV730W, DV830-N, DV830-W
