Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission report of a recall involving Rosebud drop-side cribs manufactured by Status Furniture. The drop-side rail hardware on the cribs can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib. When the drop side detaches, a hazardous gap is created between the drop-side rail and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers can become wedged or entrapped, posing risks of suffocation and strangulation. In addition, children can fall out of the crib when the drop-side rail falls unexpectedly or detaches from the crib. Drop-side rail failures can also occur due to incorrect assembly or with age-related wear and tear.
See HSW's Product Details tab for specifics on the affected items.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and The Land of Nod have received 13 reports involving drop-side hardware that has malfunctioned or failed.
The manufacturer is no longer in business and as a result, the exact model number(s), quantity, and time period over which the recalled cribs affected by this recall were sold in Canada are unknown.
Corrective Action:Consumers should carefully examine the drop-side rail hardware for any signs of damage. If consumers determine that the drop-side hardware is broken, loose, missing, or deformed or that there are any other reasons for concern, consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and find an alternative safe sleeping environment for their baby.
