Playkids U.S.A. Crib Recall

A voluntary recall of convertible cribs from Playkids U.S.A. of Brooklyn, N.Y has gone on today, Oct 16th, 2006.

The sides of the convertible crib are made of a mesh that expands, creating a gap between the mattress and the side through which an infant can slip. This poses suffocation and entrapment hazards for young children.

A fatality is already associated with the flaw.

This recall involves the
  • Playkids U.S.A. convertible crib/playpen/bassinet/bed with model number PLK-909.
"Playkids U.S.A." can be found on the packaging and on a label sewn into the side of the crib.
