Crib maker Jardine is recalling seven models -- roughly 96,000 cribs -- that had been sold at Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us, marking the company's third crib recall in a year.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling the cribs because the company says the slats on the recalled cribs can break, leaving a gap where children can get trapped or strangled. The CPSC says they've gotten 31 reports about broken crib slats and two reports of children getting trapped. Ten of the incidents were caused when a child broke the slats from inside the crib.
Jardine, based in Taiwan, recalled about 320,000 cribs in June 2008 and another 56,450 in January. If you have one of these cribs, the CPSC says you should stop using it immediately and contact Jardine to receive a credit toward the purchase of a new crib. You can reach Jardine at 800-646-4106.
