Product Details

Product name Baby cribs
Description These cribs were imported from Italy. 
Problem The cribs' vertical slats were too far apart and could allow an infant's body to slide between the slats entrapping the child by the head. This entrapment could cause strangulation. In addition, the sides of the cribs were not high enough to discourage toddlers from climbing out. Required assembly instructions which would enable consumers to assemble the cribs properly so they would be safe were not supplied. Required labeling was not present. 
Distribution Sold at Baby Desire retail stores in Brooklyn, New York. 
Company Consumers with questions should call the Commission's new York Regional Office at (212) 264-1125. 
Dates sold January 1984 through January 1985. 
Date posted 01/03/2002
