Description: Cribs Repair/Recall by Baby's Dream Furniture NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE February 10, 1998 Release # 98-065 Company Phone Number: (888) 866-4217 CPSC Consumer Hotline: (800) 638-2772 CPSC Media Contact: Nychelle Fleming, (301) 504-7063 CPSC, Baby's Dream Furniture Announce Recall to Repair Cribs WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Baby's Dream Furniture Inc. of Buena Vista, Ga., is recalling about 13,000 Generation oak cribs for repair. The cribs have a drop gate (a rail that folds down) on the front of the crib, rather than a rail that slides up and down. A baby's fingers can be trapped in the folding drop gate and injured. Baby's Dream has received eight reports of babies' fingers being trapped in the drop gate, including seven reports of severe lacerations and one report of an adult's finger being injured. Baby's Dream is offering consumers a free repair kit, consisting of a new brass piano-style hinge for the entire length of the drop gate to replace the original four smaller hinges. The new hinge closes the space between the lower section of the crib rail and the top section that folds down. Only Generation full-size oak cribs with the identifying cut numbers 194 through 1897 are subject to this recall. The cut number is printed next to the word "Generation" on a label attached to the lower rail of the crib's back frame. Independent juvenile furniture stores nationwide sold the cribs from December 1994 through June 1997 for about $500 to $700. Consumers should immediately lock the drop gate of these cribs in the closed position and call Baby's Dream toll-free at (888) 866-4217 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST Monday through Friday for the free repair kit and installation instructions. Consumers should not use the drop gate until the new hinge is installed. Consumers also can receive the repair kit by writing to Generation Crib Recall, Baby's Dream Furniture Inc., P.O. Box 579, Buena Vista, GA 31803-0579. [Source]
