JC Penney Recalls Cribs Due to Entrapment and Suffocation Hazards

JC Penney has recalled over 70,000 PT Domusindo Perdana drop-side cribs due to a problem with the drop sides which can malfunction, fail or detach. Should this occur, a space occurs between the mattress and the drop side which can cause an infant or child to become trapped or wedged in the space. If a child should become entrapped, suffocation or strangulation is possible. However, the Consumer Product Safety Commission or CPSC has no reports of injuries or deaths due to malfunctioning of the product but is aware of three incidents where the drop side malfunctioned.

The recall covers 17 models which were sold through JC Penney between January, 1998 and December 2008 for 0 to 0.

Parents are warned to discontinue use of the crib immediately and use alternative sleeping arrangements for infants and children until the replacement immobilizer parts are available for the cribs. This won't be available until May. Consumers who have cribs covered in the recall should call Modus Furniture International at (800) 827-2129 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or go to the company website at savannahbaby.com and click on the recall tab.

While waiting for the replacement parts, consumers are urged to use a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on your child's age and needs. The drop side of the recalled cribs may also malfunction due to wear and tear as well as improper assembly.

The models covered by the recall include:
