WASHINGTON, DC (KAIT) – The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling the Rosebud drop-side cribs because of the risk of entrapment, suffocation and fall hazards.

According to the CPSC, the drop-side rail hardware on the cribs can break or fail, causing the drop side to come apart from the crib. When this happens a hazardous gap is created between the drop-side rail and crib mattress.

The CPSC says infants and toddlers could become wedged or entrapped in the gap, which could include suffocation and strangulation. Also when the drop-side railing fails, it poses a fall hazard.

The CPSC says they have received 13 reports involving drop-side hardware, no injuries have been reported.

The recall is for the Rosebud cribs manufactured by Status Furniture. They were sold at The Land of Nod retail stores and their online site from January 2003 through September 2004.

The CPSC suggests consumers stop using the cribs immediately and contact The Land of Nod to receive credit for the full purchase price of the crib. You can contact The Land of Nod at 1-800-933-9904 or click here for their website.
