SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – Another brand of drop-side cribs as been recalled.
Rockland Furniture is recalling its Round Cribs — sold exclusively at JCPenney stores — due to problems with the drop sides.
Rockland says the sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail. If that happens, a baby could suffocate or get stuck. A child could also fall out of the crib or be injured due to incorrect assembly and with wear and tear.
The recall involves 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.
Repair kits to immobilize the drop side will be sent to owners for free.
