Release # 01-154

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Child Craft Industries, of Salem, Ind., is voluntarily recalling about 4,300 changing tables. Some changing table joints were not properly glued and can separate, presenting a fall hazard to babies.


Child Craft has received six reports of the changing tables falling apart, including one report of a baby starting to fall from a collapsing table when she was caught by her mother. No injuries have been reported.

The changing table is made of beech wood and comes in a variety of colors including white, honey oak, natural and cherry finishes. The table measures about 38 inches high by 35 inches wide by 20 inches deep. There are two labels on one of the rails of the changing table. One label is gold and reads in part "Child Craft Industries" and the other label is stamped in black ink and reads in part "FoppsPedretti, Made in Italy."

Department and specialty stores nationwide, including Sears and Burlington Coat Factory, sold the changing tables from August 1998 through April 2001 for about $150.

Consumers should stop using the recalled changing tables immediately and call Child Craft at (877) 716-2757 between 8:30a.m. and 5:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to receive information on participating in this recall.
