Bassettbaby Recalls CribsNovember 29, 2010
The drop-side cribs with external plastic hardware pose entrapment, suffocation and fall hazards. 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.
The cribs, manufactured in China, Croatia, Slovenia, Taiwan and Vietnam, were sold at children's product stores, and other retailers nationwide and on-line from January 2000 through August 2010 for between about $200 and $500.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled drop-side cribs and contact Bassettbaby for a free kit that will immobilize the drop side. Consumers should contact Bassettbaby at 800.308/7485 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday; or visit the firm's Web site.
