LaJobi and CPSC announced two recalls today for 4,900 cribs.
First, 2,000 Bonavita "Cabana" cribs were recalled for slat failure -- the slats can come loose and/or break. LaJobi had ten reports of slats coming out of the rails and six reports of slats breaking.
Also, 2,900 Babi Italia "Pinehurst" cribs and Bonavita "Hudson" cribs were recalled for drop side failures. The spring pins in the dropside mechanisms can come out, causing the side to detach and presenting an entrapment hazard. LaJobi had 33 reports of the pin failing, including two entrapments and one child falling out of the crib.
For the Cabana crib with the slat failures, consumers should stop using the crib immediately and contact LaJobi for replacement side rails.
For the Hudson and Pinehurst cribs, consumers should stop using the crib immediately and contact LaJobi. The company will arrange for professional technicians to provide an in-home retrofit.
