RECALL: Round Crib

Song Lin Industrial Inc. is recalling Sleigh Round Cribs due to a fall hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named above, today announced a voluntary recall of about 180 cribs. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The assembly instructions included with the crib direct consumers to assemble the crib with the mattress support in the highest position and do not indicate that the mattress support can be moved to a lower position. This poses a fall hazard to children who are able to sit or stand up in the crib. There have been no reported injuries or incidents. The Sleigh Round Crib, model #2005, measures approximately 42 inches in diameter, is made of solid wood and comes in a mahogany finish. The crib has four posts that are 31 inches in height and a portion of the side of the crib can be raised and lowered. It was sold at children’s furniture stores nationwide from January 2005 through March 2007 for about $600.
Consumers should move the mattress support to the lower setting if their child is able to sit or stand up in the crib. Consumers should also contact Song Lin Industrial Inc. to obtain a revised version of the assembly instructions, which includes directions on how to lower the mattress support. For additional information, contact Song Lin Industrial Inc. toll-free at 888-589-0088 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday, or visit
