Danbury, CT—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Ethan Allen have voluntarily recalled of Drop-Side Cribs. The recall, which was announced on October 22, 2010, involves 3,250 cribs.
The CPSC reported, “The crib’s drop-side rail hardware can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side rail to detach from the crib. When the drop-side rail partially detaches, it creates a space between the drop side and the crib mattress. An infant or toddler’s body can become entrapped in the space, which can lead to strangulation and/or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.”
Ethan Allen brand cribs with item numbers 14-5650, 15-5650, 16-5650, 26-5650, 35-5622, 36-5620, 36-5622 and 38-5622 are included in this recall. The item number and “Ethan Allen” are printed on a label on the crib’s headboard or footboard. The cribs were sold in various colors.
A free repair kit is available, which will immobilize the drop-side rail; consumers can contact Ethan Allen for the kit.
For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Ethan Allen toll-free at (888) 339-9398 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, contact the local Ethan Allen store or visit their website at www.ethanallen.com.
