Cribs and Baby Clothes Recalled
Posted by PKSD Law Firm on Jan 22, 2009 in Product Recalls
Approximately 535,000 Stork Craft baby cribs were recalled in the U.S. after the metal mattress-support brackets were found to crack and break. This could cause the mattress to collapse and create a gap where a child could get trapped or suffocate.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is aware of 10 incidents of support brackets that broke. The cribs were sold at J.C. Penney, Kmart, Wal-Mart and other stores around the country. They wre also sold online at amazon.com, babiesrus.com, costco.com, and walmart.com. They were available between May 2000 through this month.
About 16,000 Taggies Sleep n Play baby garments were recalled because the snaps on the garments can detach, posing a choking hazard. In July 2008, the company recalled two Taggies Sleep n Play style baby garments, including the Butterfly Applique and the Fun Dog Print. The recall has been expanded to include the Dinosaur Applique and the Pink Toss Print styles. The garments are one piece coveralls with snaps down the front.
RN No. 27829 is on the care label sewn into the garment. The products were sold at Babies R US, Buy Buy Baby, Dillards, Nordstrom and other specialty stores nationwide.
