Product Details

Product name Omar Crib
Description The Omar Crib is available in both natural and white. Side rails and end panels are adjustable in height. The top of the slatted end panels is an inverted "U" shape, and there is a storage drawer under the mattress. Wheels are included with the crib. The crib is packaged in a carton labeled "Made in Italy - Puck Children's Furniture - Omar". The crib itself bears no labeling. 
Problem The top edge of the end panels of the Omar Crib is an inverted "U" shape and these panels are adjustable in height. With either of the end panels in its lowest position, a V shaped opening between the end panel and corner post creates an opening where a child's head and neck could be caught. In addition, when the mattress support is in its lowest position and the side rail is in its highest position, the bottom of the side rail is higher than the mattress support, creating a gap where a child's foot could be caught. 
Distribution Sold in retail stores nationwide.
