Hazard: The crib’s drop-side rails can stop working or fall off. When this happens, the drop-side rail can fall out of position and create a space where an infant or toddler can become stuck, strangle or suffocate. A child also can fall out of the crib.
Description: Rockland Furniture round cribs with model number 343-8314 were sold in white, ebony and cherry finishes.
Remedy: Contact Rockland Furniture for a free repair kit that will prevent the drop-side rail from moving. Until the crib is repaired, find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed, depending on the child’s age.
Sold exclusively at: JCPenney stores and at jcpenney.com from January 2005 to December 2008 for about $400.
