96,000 Cribs Sold at Toys “R” Us Recalled

About 96,000 Jardine cribs sold at Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us were recalled this week. This was the company’s third crib recall in a year. The Taiwanese company recalled about 320,000 cribs in June 2008 and another 56,450 in January.

The slats on the seven models of recalled cribs can break, leaving a gap where small children can get trapped or strangled.The Consumer Product Safety Commission has received 31 reports of broken slats and two reports of children getting trapped. Ten of the incidents were caused when a child broke the slats from inside the crib.

The CPSC is writing new rules that propose to make cribs safer and more sturdy.

The cribs recalled this time were sold at Toys “R” Us, Babies “R” Us, KidsWorld, and Geoffrey stores around the country, as well as on http://www.babiesrus.com. They were sold from September 2005 to April 2009.

    Every situation is different and you never know what the outcome is going to be, but the injured should always consult with an attorney when they or their familes are the victims.

    If your loved ones are injured by one of these recalled cribs an important factor is to keep a detailed journal of all your pain and suffering caused by the product at question.
