WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Name of product: Sleigh Round Cribs
Units: About 180
Importer: Song Lin Industrial Inc., of Oklahoma City, Okla.
Hazard: The assembly instructions included with the crib direct consumers to assemble the crib with the mattress support in the highest position and do not indicate that the mattress support can be moved to a lower position. This poses a fall hazard to children who are able to sit or stand up in the crib.
Incidents/Injuries: None reported.
Description: The Sleigh Round Crib, model #2005, measures approximately 42 inches in diameter, is made of solid wood and comes in a mahogany finish. The crib has four posts that are 31 inches in height and a portion of the side of the crib can be raised and lowered.
Sold at: Children's furniture stores nationwide from January 2005 through March 2007 for about $600.
Manufactured in: China
Remedy: Consumers should move the mattress support to the lower setting if their child is able to sit or stand up in the crib. Consumers should also contact Song Lin Industrial Inc. to obtain a revised version of the assembly instructions, which includes directions on how to lower the mattress support.
Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Song Lin Industrial Inc. at (405) 455-9067 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site at www.songlinfurniture.com

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
