UPDATED: DaVinci Cribs Recalled for Defective Mattress Bracket
A defective metal bracket has caused DaVinci to recall about 11,700 cribs in the U.S. and Canada.
The company has received 10 reports that the metal bracket that connects the mattress support to the crib broke, creating an uneven sleeping surface or gap. This could cause a baby to become entrapped in the crib, fall or be otherwise injured from the broken metal bracket.
No injuries have been reported.
The recall includes DaVinci brand full-size cribs including the Reagan crib (model #M2801), the Emily crib, (model #M4791), the Jamie crib (model #M7301), and the Jenny Lind crib (model #M7391) manufactured from May 2012 through December 2012.
The model number, serial number and manufacture date are printed on a label affixed to the bottom right hand side panel of the crib. A complete list of recalled serial numbers can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website.
They were sold at Target and juvenile products stores nationwide and online from May 2012 to December 2013 for between $150 and $250.
Parents and caregivers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact Bexco, DaVinci's parent company, for a free replacement mattress support which includes replacement brackets. In the meantime, parents and caregivers are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on the child's age.
DaVinci can be contacted at (888) 673-6652.
Update: The company has expanded the initial recall after receiving five additional reports of the mattress support brackets breaking and detaching. No injuries were reported. For a list of the updated model and serial numbers of affected mattresses, see the new CPSC release.
