Health Canada says crib poses choking hazard

Health Canada is warning consumers about two crib models sold by Dorel Distribution Canada.

The agency says the wooden slats in the company’s Columbia 3-in-1 and Fairmont Lifetime cribs can break. Toddlers might get stuck in the resulting gap, posing a potential choking hazard.

Almost 2,900 units were sold, mainly at Toys "R" Us outlets across Canada.

Consumers would have purchased the effected models between March 2007 and August 2008.

Health Canada has not received reports of injuries from using these products. But, consumers should stop using them and contact Dorel at 1-800-295-1980 to get a credit for new units.
