RECALL ALERT: Children at risk of becoming trapped in popular crib
NEW YORK — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for a popular child crib Tuesday after discovering children can easily become trapped due to a faulty rail.
The commission issued the recall of Oeuf Sparrow Cribs after receiving four reports the top rail detached from the crib unintentionally.
No children were hurt, but officials fear the easily detached railing could trap children in the crib.
The recall includes four models of Oeuf Sparrow cribs. The cribs were sold in the colors birch, grey, walnut and white.
The recalled cribs were manufactured between July 2007 and January 2014 and have one of the following model numbers: 1SPCR, 2SPCR, 4SPCR or 5SPCR. The manufacture date, in the MM-YYYY format, and the model number are located on the warning label attached to the crib’s mattress support.
The cribs cost around $800 each, and about 14,000 units were sold.
