Importer: JC Penney Corp., of Plano, Texas

Hazard: The cribs' drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.
Incidents/Injuries: CPSC and the firm are aware of three incidents involving drop side rails that malfunctioned or detached. No injuries were reported.
