|The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in cooperation with Bassett Furniture Industries, Inc., of Bassett, Va.
have recalled about 90,000 Bassettbaby drop-side cribs with external plastic hardware.
The crib's drop-side rail can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to detach from the crib. When a 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 also can fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents also can occur due to incorrect assembly and age-related wear and tear.
This recall involves the products listed below:The recalled cribs are wood with a metal mattress support and have a drop side with external plastic hardware. The cribs were sold in a variety of finishes. A label is attached to the footboard or headboard with the names "Bassettbaby" or "Bassett Furniture Industries, Inc." as well as the model number, production date and other information. On some older models the manufacturer's name appears on a separate label.
We will be more than glad if you leave your comments in the box below.
