Angel Line Recalls to Repair Longwood Forest Drop-Side Cribs Due to Entrapment, Suffocation and Fall Hazards
Recall date:October 22, 2010
Product Category: Furniture
|The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Angel Line, of Pennsville, N.J.
have recalled about 3,400 drop-side cribs.
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 also can occur due to age-related wear and tear.
CPSC is aware of one incident in which the crib’s drop side detached. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the products listed below:
This recall involves the following models of Longwood Forest drop-side cribs with plastic drop-side hardware: 6103S, 6105S, 6106S, 6108S, 6109S, 8025P, and 8029P.
They were sold in white, brown, natural and oak colors. “Longwood Forest” or “Angel Line” and the model number are printed on a label on the crib’s headboard.
The firm’s fixed-side cribs and drop-side cribs with metal rod-type hardware are not included in this recall.
The cribs were sold in a variety of colors.
The cribs were sold on the Web at Ababy.com, Babyage.com and other Web retailers from December 2004 through January 2009 for about $140.
