Cribs Sold at JC Penney Recalled; Risk of Entrapment and Suffocation

Cribs Sold at JC Penney Recalled; Risk of Entrapment and Suffocation
July 24, 2013

Nan Far Woodworking has recalled approximately 3,900 Rockland Furniture round cribs sold exclusively at JC Penney.

The crib's drop-side rails can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail. When this happens, the drop-side rail can fall out of position and create a space where an infant or toddler can become wedged or entrapped, posing a risk of strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. In addition, drop-side related incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.

This recall involves Rockland Furniture round cribs with model number 343-8314. The model number is printed on a label located on the inner-lower portion of the crib rail. The cribs are 44 ½ inches in diameter and were sold in white, ebony and cherry finishes.

The recalled cribs were sold at JC Penney stores and online from January 2005 to December 2008.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact Rockland Furniture for a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop-side rail. Until the crib is repaired, consumers should find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child.
