Drop-side cribs recalled due to entrapment and fall hazards

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KAIT) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of some cribs on Friday.

The cribs are manufactured by Shermag Inc. of Quebec, Canada and according to the CPSC he drop-side rail hardware on the cribs can break or fail, allowing the drop-side to detach from the crib. When the drop-side detaches, a hazardous gap is created between the rail and the mattress in which infants and toddlers can become wedged.

21 incidents involving the drop-sides have been reported but no injuries have been reported. Consumers are urged to stop using these cribs immediately and contact the firm for a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop side.

For more information on this recall you can visit www.shermag.com and for additional information on this and other recalls visit www.cpsc.gov.
