Baby Cribs Recalled
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, HBLA Imports, Inc., Dallas, Texas, today announced a voluntary recall of their HBLA non-full size baby cribs imported in January 1985. The cribs, distributed in Arkansas; Texas; Oklahoma: Artesia, New Mexico; Pikeville, Kentucky; and Hammond, Louisiana, sell at retail for approximately $65.00. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has determined that this type of baby crib is banned because it fails to meet safety requirements with respect to hardware, spacing of crib spindles in slats decorative cutouts, assembly instructions, labeling, and mattress thickness. Potential hazards include falling from the crib, pinching, laceration, entrapment, and strangulation.
