Recall on Pottery Barn Kids Drop-Side Cribs

Posted by admin

Pottery Barn, in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, reported a recall on their own merit, of their Pottery Barn Kids brand drop-side cribs. The recall amasses around 82,000 units and the recall describes the risk as a flaw in hardware that involves the drop-down sides coming loose, creating an entrapment risk and further, a suffocation hazard. Another endangerment issue involves the chance of a child falling out of the crib. Such accidents are enhanced by regular wear and tear over time and initial faulty assembly.

Different reports across the country span a number of 36 in total and incidents were not reported on unique model numbers. You can identify the brand by the designated label affixed to the headboard or footboard of the crib. The units were sold solely through Pottery Barn Kids division stores all over the country and the Pottery Barn Kids division catalog for between the amounts of $300 and $600 dollars and spanned a time period of January of 1999 all the way through to March of this year.

Pottery Barn Kids is a subsidiary of Williams & Sonoma, Inc based out of Califonia. If you find you own one of these faulty units, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advises you to cease using the crib immediately, look at the structure to see if it is indeed broken and contact the supplier at the information below:

Contact Pottery Barn Kids at (877) 804-3847 between 7 a.m. and midnight 7 days a week or you can surely seek out the firm’s website at www.potterybarnkids.com.

The vendor states that if the faulty units are reported to them, they will provide a kit to repair the faulty drop-down side free of charge.
