CPSC, B&B Stores Announce Recall of Mesh-Sided Cribs WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), B&B Stores (also known as Velasco Alonso Inc.) of Arecibo, Puerto Rico, recalled about 400 mesh-sided cribs. The mattress pad compresses, a gap can occur between the side panels and the bed frame, and the snaps can separate from the frame, presenting suffocation hazards. In addition, the side rails can bend, presenting an entrapment hazard. CPSC and B&B Stores are not aware of any injuries involving these cribs. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury. The recalled mesh-sided crib is made of white metal and has four red wheels. The crib has mesh sides and a mesh canopy that snaps onto the metal support bars. The canopy has a zipper. The mattress pad and the edges of the mesh enclosure are made of plastic. B&B Stores in Puerto Rico sold these cribs from August 1996 through January 1997 for about $30. Consumers should stop using these cribs immediately and discard or destroy them. The firm is out of business and a remedy is no longer available. [Source]
