Crib slats may break

Health Canada has recalled about 785 Olympia 3-in-1 wooden cribs, because the slats can break, posing a hazard to infants and toddlers.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has received 19 reports of the slats breaking, including a case where a 22-month old fell through the gap. In nine cases, the baby broke the slat while in the crib.

No injuries have been reported, however, and there are no reports of incidents in Canada.
The recalled cribs were sold by Toys 'R' Us Canada Ltd. from April 2006 to January 2008.

For additional information, consumers can call the manufacturer, Dorel Distribution Canada, at 1-800-295-1980 between 8:00 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

Dorel will provide a credit toward the purchase of a new crib.
