This past week, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and LaJobi recalled 2,000 Bonavita “Cabana” Drop Side Cribs. The wooden crib slats can detach or break creating a gap, which can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers. LaJobi has received 16 incident reports of crib slat failures, including 10 reports of slats falling out of rails and 6 reports of slats breaking.
The cribs were sold at USA Baby, Beautiful Beginnings, Buy Buy Baby and other specialty stores nationwide from January 2006 through May 2009 for about $450. This recall involves Bonavita “Cabana” wooden drop side cribs with metal mattress supports. The cribs were manufactured from January 2006 through October 2008 and have production dates between 01 JAN 2006 and 31 OCT 2008. The model name, color, product order (PO) number, production date and other crib identifiers are printed on a label located on the inside bottom rail of the headboard or footboard. The cribs were sold in three finishes, antique white, classic cherry and montego brown. Cribs with other production dates are not affected by this recall.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact LaJobi toll-free at (866) 688-9009 anytime, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.LaJobi.com.
