CPSC and Land of Nod announced a recall today of 300 “Rosebud” drop-side cribs. The cribs pose (as do most drop-side cribs) a risk of entrapment and suffocation. These cribs were sold in 2003 and 2004. While no injuries or deaths were reported, the company and CPSC cite 13 reports of failing drop-side hardware — almost 5% of the cribs sold were reported to be faulty. It is not clear from the information released when the reports of failure began to surface and how long this recall was in the works.
We applaud Land of Nod for stepping up to the plate now and providing a full refund ($599) for this dangerous crib. The crib’s manufacturer, Status Furniture, is out of business.
If you have this crib, please stop using immediately and find a safe place for your baby to sleep until you can get a new crib.
With over 10 million cribs recalled since 2007, consumers should all check their crib against the CPSC’s list of crib recalls. You can find more safety information on cribs on CPSC’s Crib Information Center as well as KID’s website.
