WASHINGTON About 320,000 Jardine cribs sold by Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us stores were recalled Tuesday because four children became trapped. The wooden slats and spindles on the crib frames can break, allowing children to get trapped in the remaining gap. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reported 42 incidents of broken slats and spindles. This includes four instances of children getting trapped, two of whom suffered cuts and bruises.
The recalled cribs were manufactured in China and Vietnam by Jardine Enterprises and sold by Toys "R" Us Inc. retailers: KidsWorld stores, Geoffrey stores, Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us. KidsWorld and Geoffrey stores are no longer in operation, but sold the recalled cribs when they were open.
The cribs were sold around the country between January 2002 through May 2008. For more information on the specific Jardine crib styles included in the recall, consumers can call 800-646-4106.
