RECALL: Land Of Nod “Rosebud” Drop-Side Cribs Due To Entrapment, Suffocation & Fall Hazards
Today, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with The Land Of Nod, announced a voluntary recall of approximately 300 of their “Rosebud” Drop-Side Cribs. Manufactured by Status Furniture, of Quebec, Canada (currently out of business), the cribs are hazardous as the drop-side rail hardware can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib.
Once 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.
So far, 13 reports of malfunctioning or failing hardware have been reported, but no injuries thus far. The “Rosebud” cribs involved in the recall are white or antique white and have plastic drop-side hardware. “Status Furniture” appears on crib labeling on the lower portion of the headboard. Model number “910” appears on the assembly instructions.
The cribs were sold in The Land of Nod retail stores and online at www.landofnod.com from January 2003 through September 2004 for about $600. If you currently own one of these cribs, CPSC is asking that you contact The Land of Nod immediately to find out how you can receive a merchandise credit for the full purchase price of the crib ($599).
