RECALL: Crib Bumpers by Pottery Barn Kids
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Pottery Barn Kids of California, today announced a voluntary recall 31,000 Matelassé Crib Bumpers. The decorative stitching on the bumper's edge can come loose, posing an entanglement hazard to young children. Pottery Barn Kids has received two reports of incidents involving the decorative stitching coming loose. No injuries have been reported. This recall involves the Diamond Matelassé, Floral Matelassé and Polka Dot Matelassé crib bumpers made of 100% cotton. The Diamond Matelassé bumpers are white and have decorative thread in pink, blue, green, yellow or chocolate stitched along the scalloped edge. The Polka Dot and Floral bumpers come in assorted colors with matching decorative stitching. A label on the bumper reads "pottery barn kids." The bumpers were sold at Pottery Barn Kids stores nationwide, its catalog, and online stores from February 2003 through June 2007 for about $90.
