Cribs Recalled After Reports That Brackets Can Break, Trapping Or Injuring Infants

Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 9.52.47 AMAll recalls are important to take note of, but those related to the safety of products used specifically for the youngest consumers – babies – are often of the utmost importance. And while a recent recall for Bexco is relatively small, because there’s a risk of entrapment of infants the issue falls into the “take note” category. 

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced this week that Bexco would recall 12,000 DaVinci cribs after 10 reports in which a metal bracket that connects the mattress support to the crib broke.

If the bracket breaks, it can create an uneven sleeping surface or gap, which could lead to an infant becoming entrapped in the crib, falling or suffering lacerations from the broken metal bracket.

Thankfully, Bexco reports there have not been any reports of injuries related to the issue.

In all, the recall covers the Reagan, Emily, Jamie and Jenny Lind crib models that were sold for between $150 and $250 at Target and juvenile product stores nationwide and on Amazon from May 2012 to December 2012.

Bexco urges consumers to immediately stop using the crib and contact the company for a replacement mattress support.
