Pottery Barn Kids Recalls 12,000 Crib Bumpers after Reports of Child Entanglement
Small children are especially vulnerable to the dangers of defective consumer products, and often the products that result in injury or death to innocent children are intended specifically for them. Most recently, Pottery Barn Kids recalled approximately 12,000 crib bumpers sold in stores nationwide and online because the stitching can loosen and wrap around a child’s neck.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Pottery Barn Kids recall affects Sweet Lambie crib bumpers sold between April 2009 and July 2012 in Pottery Barn Kids stores and online. These cotton bumpers are padded, feature lamb and tree designs, and were designed to fit standard cribs.
The impacted crib bumpers feature one of the following model numbers:
Although there have been no reports of serious injuries, there have been reports of infants becoming entangled in the stitching. Consumers with these crib bumpers are advised to discontinue their use immediately. Please see the CPSC Pottery Barn Kids crib bumper recall page for information on what to do with the products.
