Defective Cribs Recalled for Fall and Entrapment Hazard

Caramia is issuing a product defect recall for about 1,000 “Diane” drop-side cribs. According to a news report in Consumeraffairs.com, the slats on these recalled cribs’ drop side can detach from the top and bottom rails posing fall and entrapment hazards to young children. So far, the company has received 18 reports of the slats detaching. No injuries or fatalities have been reported yet as a result of these product defects.

These cribs were manufactured in Slovenia from September 2002 and June 2004 and sold at Buy Buy Baby and other children’s products and mass merchandise stores nationwide. They were sold for between $240 and $370. If you have one of these cribs in your home, preschool or childcare facility, please stop using them and call the company to receive a free replacement drop side.

Improperly manufactured drop side cribs certainly pose a serious hazard to babies and toddlers. These product defects have recently caused numerous serious injuries and fatalities. Several young children nationwide have lost their lives because of these defective cribs, bassinets and even toddler beds. If your child has been injured as a result of these or other recalled products, please understand that you have legal rights. You can seek compensation by filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim against the manufacturer of the defective product.
