Oeuf Sparrow Crib Recall Issued Due to Entrapment Risk

About 14,000 infant cribs are being recalled following reports of problems that suggest the slats and top rails may detaching, posing an entrapment hazard for babies. 

A Sparrow crib recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on July 22, after at least four consumer complaints were received involving the side slats and spindles disconnecting from the top rail.

Although no injuries have been reported to date, the CPSC indicates that this may pose a serious risk for infants, as the pieces may fall into the crib or create dangerous gaps. The products pose an entrapment and suffocation hazard, due to the heavy side wall slats. In the event the slats collapse, or the top rail falls on the infant, it can trap them between the mattress and the railings.

The cribs were manufactured from July 2007 through January 2014 and have the manufacture date in MM-YYYY format located on a warning label attached to the crib’s mattress support. The cribs were sold in the colors birch, grey, walnut, and white.

The recalled cribs were manufactured in Latvia under Oeuf LLC, of Brooklyn, New York and were sold nationwide at independent juvenile specialty stores and online for about $800.
