About 8,900 Wendy Bellissimo convertible cribs are being recalled in the U.S. because they pose entrapment and strangulation hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
Bolts on the cribs, imported by Virginia-based Bassettbaby, may come loose, the company said. Bassettbaby has learned of 85 incidents, including one in which a child's hand became caught between the crib's rails.
The recall applies to convertible cribs with the model numbers 5945-0521 and 5545-0521 and full-size cribs with one of the following purchase orders: 272903, 272904, 273904, 276728, 276729, 291081, 323975, 324472, 320318, 323976, 332883 365620, 368466, 338535, 338537 and 332884
The cribs were sold at Babies "R" Us stores in the U.S. from July 2005 through October 2007 for about $500 US.
Consumers should stop using the cribs and contact the company for a free repair kit.
