2008-Jul - Jardine Cribs Recalled Due to Entrapment and Strangulation Hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Jardine Enterprises, of Taipei, Taiwan, announced a voluntary recall of about 320,000 Jardine Cribs. The wooden crib slats and spindles can break, creating a gap, which can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants. There have been 42 incidents of crib slats and spindles breaking. Four children became entrapped in the space created by a broken slat or spindle. Two of the children had abrasions and bruising.
The cribs were made in China and Vietnam and sold in the US at KidsWorld, Geoffrey Stores, Toys “R” Us, and Babies “R” Us stores nationwide, and at babiesrus.com, from January 2002 through May 2008. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact Jardine to receive a full credit toward the purchase of a new crib. For additional information, contact Jardine at (800) 646-4106 or visit the firm’s Web site at www.jardinecribrecall.com.
