Mesh convertible cribs sold in New York have been voluntarily recalled by Playkids U.S.A. due to suffocation and entrapment hazards.
About 2,000 of the convertible cribs, which were made in China, were sold by retailers in New York for about $100 from March 2007 through September 2008.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said it is aware of the death of a five-month-old in Brooklyn, N.Y., who got trapped between the mattress and rail of the crib and suffocated.
The crib has the model number PLK-909. The combination playpen and bed has a drop side rail, canopy assembly and bassinet. It uses fabric and mesh as supports.
Consumers with the product are being asked to discontinue its use and to contact Playkids USA to receive a refund.
