July 25, 2013: Rockland Furniture Round Cribs Recall
Nan Far Woodworking voluntarily recall Rockland Furniture Round Cribs, due to Entrapment, Suffocation and Fall Hazards.
What’s the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Nan Far Woodworking, are announcing the voluntary recall of Rockland Furniture Round Cribs sold exclusively at JC Penny. The recall is due to the crib’s drop-side rails can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail. When this happens, the drop-side rail can fall out of position and create a space where an infant or toddler can become wedged or entrapped, posing a risk of strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. In addition, drop-side related incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear. No Injures have been reported.
Do You Own It?
This recall involves Rockland Furniture round cribs with model number 343-8314. The model number is printed on a label located on the inner-lower portion of the crib rail. The cribs are 44 ½ inches in diameter and were sold in white, ebony and cherry finishes.
What Should You Do?
Consumers should stop using this product, which is being recalled voluntarily, unless otherwise instructed.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact Rockland Furniture for a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop-side rail. Until the crib is repaired, consumers should find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed, depending on the child’s age.
