CPSC, Hufco-Delaware Company and Evenflo Company Inc. Announce Recall to Repair Gerry® and Evenflo® Portable Wood Cribs

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Hufco-Delaware Company, of Miamisburg, Ohio, and Evenflo Company Inc., of Vandalia, Ohio, are recalling about 364,000 portable wood cribs. If the hardware used to assemble the crib is not tight, the mattress support platform and mattress can fall to the floor. This poses a risk of injury to young children in the crib.

There have been 41 reports of mattresses falling through portable wood cribs. Of these incidents, 17 children suffered bumps, bruises or scratches.

The portable cribs are made of wood and are smaller than traditional baby cribs. The majority of these portable wood cribs were sold under the Gerry® brand name, and some were sold under the Evenflo® brand name. The recalled portable wood cribs have one of the following model numbers that can be found on a label on the mattress platform underneath the mattress:

8212 8222 8232 8242 8252 8282
8301 8302 8311 8312 8321 8322 8331
8332 8341 8342 8351 8352 8381 8382
8512 8522 8532 8542 8552 8582
8712 8752


Department and baby products stores nationwide sold these portable wood cribs from January 1991 through December 2002 for about $99.

Consumers should stop using these portable wood cribs immediately, and call (800) 582-9359 anytime for a free upgrade kit that provides additional support for the mattress platform. Consumers also can obtain further information about the portable wood cribs by logging onto www.evenflo.com (eventually this link will also be at www.portablewoodcrib.com).

No other cribs are included in this recall.

 UNSAFE CRIBS AND PLAYYARDS IN HOTELS

The Consumer Product Safety Commission and the National Safe Kids Campaign announced in February of 2000 that a recent spot check conducted by the National Safe Kids Campaign "found unsafe cribs and play yards in 80% of hotels and motels visited".

It was estimated in the announcement "that children under the age of 2 spend more than 7 million nights per year in hotels, motels and resorts".

Heather Paul, Executive Director of the National Safe Kids Campaign said "this information assessment simply raises a red flag for the hotel industry that they might unknowingly be putting babies at risk".

Many hotels and resorts do not keep abreast of recall notices and safety information for cribs.  As well, the staff involved in setting up cribs may not even been aware that recalled or unsafe cribs, improper bedding, placement of cribs or simply not having cribs available may present a danger to these young guests.  These factors also create a liability risk for the hotel.

Another danger that may be present with hotel cribs is the risk that hotel cribs may be disposed of in an unsafe manner or donated to a local shelter as a well-meaning gesture.  Improper disposal of cribs not only presents a risk to the children that may be the recipients of the cribs but also presents a liability issue to hotels.

Dangers of Crib Sheets

The following press release was issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission on May 18, 2001.

Consumer Product Safety Commission Safety Alert

May 18, 2001, Sheets in cribs or beds can sometimes be hazardous to babies. Since 1984, CPSC has learned of the deaths of 17 babies, most under 12 months old, who suffocated or strangled primarily when they became entangled in sheets in their cribs or beds. Two of these deaths related to fitted crib sheets.

CPSC staff has worked actively to strengthen safety requirements for fitted crib sheets. Consumers soon will see warning labels on fitted crib sheets stressing the importance of a secure fit on crib mattresses. CPSC staff and industry also are working together to improve the fit of these sheets on mattresses.

To prevent tragedies, parents and caretakers can take the following precautions to ensure a safer sleeping environment for their young children.

  • Make sure crib sheets fit snugly on a crib mattress and overlap the mattress so it cannot be dislodged by pulling on the corner of the sheet.
  • Never use an adult sheet on a crib mattress; it can come loose and present an entanglement hazard to young children.
  • Place a baby on his/her back on a firm, tight-fitting mattress in a crib meeting current safety standards.
  • Remove pillows, quilts, comforters, and sheepskins from the crib.

DANGERS OF SOFT BEDDING IN PLAYPENS

The following excerpt is from a press release issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission on July 12, 2001.  Go to Crib Safety News for full press release.

"Report Finds Soft Bedding a Factor in Playpen Deaths
CPSC ...

July 12, 2001, WASHINGTON, D.C - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released a report (pdf) today on deaths in playpens. Since 1988, CPSC has reports of more than 200 babies who died while in playpens. In almost 100 of these deaths, soft bedding or improper or extra mattresses were present in the playpen and the babies died of suffocation or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). More than 70 percent of these deaths were to babies less than 12 months old. Twenty-six of the playpen deaths occurred in a daycare setting.

Over the years, playpens, portable cribs and play yards have evolved into virtually identical products. Parents use playpens today as places for babies to both sleep and play. 

For years, CPSC has warned about the dangers of soft bedding such as quilts, comforters and pillows in cribs. Soft bedding can become molded around an infant's face and cause suffocation. As many as one-third of baby deaths attributed to SIDS, in fact, may be suffocation in soft bedding.

"Many parents and caregivers know the dangers of soft bedding in cribs," said CPSC Chairman Ann Brown. "This study shows, for the first time, that the same dangers exist when using pillows, quilts, and comforters in playpens."

The findings emphasize the need for caregivers to be aware that the same safe sleeping guidelines that they follow for their babies' cribs should be followed in these playpens. That means placing baby on his back on a firm, flat mattress and not adding extra mattresses or any soft bedding, such as pillows, quilts, or comforters. "
