August 5, 2008: Baby Appleseed Cribs Recall
Cribs pose a fall hazard to children
According to the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), Baby Appleseed®, of City of Industry, California, is voluntarily recalling approximately 500 of its cribs. While no injuries have been reported, the cribs fail to meet federal safety standards. They have a two-mattress support system, and the secondary mattress support (used for the lowest position) does not meet the full 26 inch minimum height in its lowest position, allowing children inside to crawl over the railing, which poses a fall hazard.
Do You Own This Crib?
The recall includes Davenport crib models that begin with the model numbers 273-xxxx-xxxx and have manufacture dates on or before August 2007 printed on a label located on the right side of the lower inner panel of the crib. The recalled cribs have two mattress support systems: a metal one and a wooden one. Newer Davenport cribs with model numbers beginning with 244-xxxx-xxxx that have one mattress support are not included in the recall.
Whom to Contact
Consumers who are currently using the crib with the metal mattress support in the top or middle positions can continue to use the crib in those positions while awaiting a repair kit. Consumers should stop using the recalled cribs in the third lowest position, which uses the wooden mattress support, and contact Baby Appleseed to receive a repair kit.
