Yu Wei Recalls Drop-Side Cribs Sold Exclusively at J.C. Penney Due to Entrapment and Suffocation Hazards

Published on Oct 7, 2011 at 2:35 pm in Consumer Awareness.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of about 8,000 drop-side cribs imported by J. C. Penney Purchasing Corp. and manufactured by Yu Wei Co. Ltd. The agency said the drop-side part of the crib can detach, creating a dangerous gap that babies or toddlers could become trapped in and suffocate. CPSC and the firms are aware of nine incidents involving drop-side rails that malfunctioned or detached, including one report of a child who sustained minor abrasions to the arm. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/yu-wei-recalls-drop-side-cribs-sold-exclusively-at-jcpenney-due-to-entrapment-and-suffocation-hazards-131166898/
