Bassettbaby Recalls to Repair Drop-Side Cribs Due to Entrapment, Suffocation and Fall Hazards

November 22, 2010

The following product safety recall was voluntarily conducted by the firm in cooperation with the CPSC. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Bassettbaby drop-side cribs with external plastic hardware
Units: About 90,000
Importer: Bassett Furniture Industries, Inc., of Bassett, Va.
Hazard: The cribs’ drop-side rail can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to detach from the crib. When a drop-side rail partially detaches, it creates a space between the drop side and the crib mattress. An infant or toddler’s body can become entrapped in the space, which can lead to strangulation and/or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and age-related wear and tear.
Incidents/Injuries: The firm and CPSC are aware of 18 reported incidents in which drop sides malfunctioned or detached from the crib.  No injuries were reported.  In one of the incidents a child became entrapped between the mattress and the drop side.  In three of the incidents children fell out of the cribs.  The firm has also received 154 reports of drop-side hardware breaking during shipment, assembly or use.
Description: The recalled cribs are wood with a metal mattress support and have a drop side with external plastic hardware.  The cribs were sold in a variety of finishes.  A label is attached to the footboard or headboard with the names “Bassettbaby” or “Bassett Furniture Industries, Inc.” as well as the model number, production date and other information.  On some older models the manufacturer’s name appears on a separate label.  Note: This recall does not include non drop-side cribs.
Sold by: Children’s product stores and other retailers nationwide and on-line from January 2000 through August 2010 for between about $200 and $500.
Manufactured in: China, Croatia, Slovenia, Taiwan and Vietnam
Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled drop-side cribs and contact Bassettbaby for a free kit that will immobilize the drop side.  In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on the child’s age.
Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Bassettbaby at (800) 308-7485 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.
