Alexander Designs baby crib recalled due to entrapment

Alexander Designs Ltd, exclusively sold at JcPenny, in cooperation with The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

announced a voluntary recall of the drop side cribs due to entrapment, and suffocation hazards. The drop side rail has been known to break off or fail causing the drop side to completely detach from the crib and posing an extreme hazard to a child. The detached drop side causes a fairly large gap in the railing and the mattress that then makes an infant or toddler entrapped or wedged.

The manufacturer of the crib, Jardine Enterprises, has already voluntarily recalled several of their drop side cribs earlier this year for entrapment issues, There have been two reported incidents involving drop-side malfunctions on the Alexander Designs drop-side cribs. In one incident, the crib had been misassembled, the plastic hardware broke and the drop-side rail fell unexpectedly. In a second incident, a hardware failure caused the drop-side rail of the crib to completely detach from the crib. This voluntary recall involves full-size cribs sold under the Alexander Designs brand name. “Alexander Designs Ltd.” and the JCPenney catalog/item number are printed on a label on the crib’s headboard.

The China manufactured cribs were sold nationwide at JcPenny stores, online or via the catalog. If you own this crib, please stop using it immediately and seek alternative sleeping arrangements. For a free repair kit, please contact the Jardine at (800) 295-1980 or visit the firm’s website.
