Jardine Crib Recall Expanded: Total of 472,450 Cribs Now Recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Jardine Cribs have once again expanded a prior crib recall first issued last year, adding another 96,000 units to the list of potentially dangerous cribs. This is the third separate recall involving Jardine cribs sold exclusively at Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, KidsWorlds and Geoffrey Stores, bringing the combined total number of cribs recalled to 472,450.

This latest Jardine crib recall added seven models of wooden cribs with date codes between September 2005 and November 2007. Prior recalls were issued in June 2008 for 320,000 cribs, and in January 2009 for another 56,450 cribs.

Potentially defective wooden slats on the sides of the crib could break, creating a gap large enough for an infant or toddle to become trapped.

At least 31 reports have been received of the wooden slats breaking, with 10 of the incidents involving children who broke the slats while they were in the cribs. Two of the confirmed reports involved children who became entrapped, but only minor injuries occurred.

The recall list includes cribs with the following model and date codes, which were sold between September 2005 and April 2009 fro between $220 and $330:

  • Drop-side Natural Olympia Single – Model # 0102B00 – Date Code Between 9/2005 and 1/2007
  • Drop-side Dark Pine Olympia Single – Model # 0102E00 – Date Code Between 9/2005 and 1/2008
  • Black Olympia Lifetime – Model # 0302P00 – Date Code Between 11/2005 and 5/2008
  • White Olympia Lifetime – Model # 0302C00 – Date Code Between 6/2006 and 12/2006
  • Americana Pecan 4-in-1 – Model # 0312D00 – Date Code Between 5/2006 and 11/2007
  • Antique Walnut Capri 4-in-1 – Model # 0308L00 – Date Code Between 12/2005 and 11/2007
  • Drop-side White Capri Single – Model # 0108C00 – Date Code Between 8/2006 and 11/2007

Consumers have been urged to immediately stop using the recalled Jardine cribs and to contact the manufacturer at (800) 646-4106 or visit www.jardinecribrecall.com.

Many of the cribs recalled are drop-side cribs, which contain one side that lowers to make it easier for the parent to reach the child. Although this recall was not associated with problems with the drop side, Toys “R” Us announced last month that they are phasing the crib design out of their inventory following a number of major crib recalls and several infant deaths.

Since the U.S. CPSC changed the way they analyze complaints in 2007 to identify patterns of products with particular products, a growing number of baby crib recalls have been issues as a result of defective designs which could pose an entrapment or strangulation hazard.

    We own the Jardine - Drop-side Black Olympia Single – Model # 0102P00 – Date Code 04/2006. So I am wondering how this bed could be any different/any safer than the EXACT same beds that have been recalled. The ONLY difference is the COLOR. This does not make sense, only certain Babies 'R; Us stores carried the black color, so I think this may have been overlooked in error!

    Seriously, Jardine has recalled the EXACT same bed...EXACT same model with the only difference being that our bed is black in color # 0102P00 Drop-Side Olympia Single date 04/2006.

So, can anyone please tell me how being a different color can make any difference at all. My opinion of this is that only a few Babies 'R' Us stores carried the bed in black and somehow this has been overlooked in the recall.
