Product Details

Product name Crib Teething Rails
Description The cribs with the teething rails being recalled can be identified by the label, "OKLA HOMER SMITH FURNITURE MANUFACTURING CO., INC.," on the inside of the headboard near the bottom, and a numerical manufacturing date for the period June 1976 through December 1976, ink-stamped underneath the headboard. Only the cribs made in the June-December 1976 timeframe carry the potentially defective teething rails. All of the cribs are wooden, and almost all of the teething rails are white , with about one percent being red. The cribs ranged in price from $50 - $100. 
Problem The plastic teething rails may become brittle and pose a potential hazard of cracking when chewed. Broken pieces could be swallowed by a teething infant, become lodged in the windpipe or perhaps injure a baby in other ways. 
Distribution Sold by numerous department and baby furniture stores across the country, including Sear, Roebuck and Company, and Montgomery Ward.
