August 5, 2008: Mother Hubbard’s Cupboards Crib Recall
Cribs fail to meet the federal safety standards
Four cribs were included in this recall; “Enchantment” image here represents just one.
According to the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), Mother Hubbard’s Cupboards of Toronto, Canada, is voluntarily recalling approximately 1,300 of its cribs due to a failure of the product to meet federal safety standards. While no injuries have been reported, the distance between the mattress support bracket in the lowest position and the top of the side rail in the highest position is less than the required 26 inches, posing a fall hazard to children who climb over the railing.

Only date codes from 0306 through 0308 are included in this recall. The model number and date code are printed on a label located on the bottom inside of the right side.
