CPSC recalls 96,000 more baby cribs
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled cribs manufactured by Jardine Enterprises for the third time in two years. This time because of slats that fracture and can trap or strangle a child. The Commission has received reports of 31 events involving slats breaking, including two episodes of children who were trapped as a result. In ten of the cases, the child broke the slat while in the crib. Almost half-a-million cribs have now been recalled. The cribs were manufactured in China or Vietnam. A list of recalled crib models is maintained at cpsc.gov.
