RECALL: Jardin Cribs Sold by Babies R Us Due to Entrapment and Strangulation Hazards

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Jardin Enterprises of Taiwan, today announced a voluntary recall about 320,000 Jardin Cribs. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. 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. Jardine wooden cribs in various styles and finishes, as listed below, are included in this recall.
