Child Craft brand Crib ‘N’ Double Bed full size stationary-side cribs with dowel

Description: CPSC Announces Recall to Repair Child Craft Brand Stationary-Side Cribs with Dowel Due to Entrapment and Strangulation Hazards Name of Product: Child Craft brand "Crib 'N' Double Bed" full size stationary-side cribs with dowel Manufacturer: Child Craft Industries, Inc. (Child Craft ceased operations in July of 2009 and sold the "Child Craft" name to Foundations Worldwide Inc., of Medina, Ohio) Foundations Worldwide, Inc. neither manufactured nor sold any of the cribs included in this recall. Units: Between 40,000 and 50,000 Hazard: The cribs' stationary side can be assembled upside-down but still appear to be assembled correctly. If assembled upside-down, the crib side contains a hazardous five-inch gap at the top of the crib. Infants or toddlers can become entrapped in this gap (as depicted in the photo below), which can lead to entrapment, strangulation or other injuries. Incidents/Injuries: CPSC has received four reports of children becoming entrapped between the dowel and the crib's stationary front side. In two of those reports, the child was trapped by his/her head and was in danger of being strangled. In the other two reports, the child was trapped by his/her arm. This hazard can occur on both the front and back sides of the crib. Description: All Child Craft brand cribs with the foot top dowel (as shown in the photos below) including, but not limited to, the following models: Name Model Number(s) Child Craft convertible cribs F36101 The name "Child Craft" appears on a label on the crib's frame and identifies the place of manufacture as Salem, Indiana or New Salisbury, Indiana. These cribs were manufactured by Child Craft Industries, Inc., which is no longer in business. Sold at: Babies 'R Us and other stores nationwide between January 1998 and June 2009 for between $600 and $650. Remedy: The CPSC staff urges parents and caregivers to examine these cribs immediately and determine whether they have been assembled properly. The best way to do this is to measure the gap between the front and back sides of the crib and the dowel that runs parallel to the sides. The gap should be no more than two and three eighths inches (2 3/8"), as shown in the images below. If the gap is greater than 2 3/8", the side has been installed upside-down and needs to be re-assembled. Another indicator that the side has been installed improperly is the appearance of the barrel nut, as is visible in the image above showing an incorrect assembly. The barrel nut should be at the bottom of the side, not the top. If either of these conditions are present, the side of the crib has been installed upside-down and needs to be re-assembled so that the barrel nut is not visible from the top and the gap between the dowel and the side is no greater than two and three eighths inches (2 3/8"). Consumers with these cribs should contact Foundations Worldwide, Inc., to obtain instructions and decals to affix to the stationary sides of the crib to ensure proper assembly in the future.
