Graco®-Branded Drop Side Cribs Made by LaJobi Recalled Due to Entrapment and Suffocation Hazards
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, LaJobi Inc., of Cranbury, N.J., is voluntarily recalling about 217,000 Graco®-branded drop side cribs made by LaJobi. The drop side hardware can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib. When the drop side detaches, a hazardous gap is created between the drop side and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers can become wedged or entrapped, posing a risk of suffocation and strangulation. In addition, children can fall from the cribs when the drop side detaches or fails to lock.
