Pottery Barn crib recall
Pottery Barn Kids is recalling about 82,000 drop-side cribs, regardless of model number. The recall is prompted by reports of drop sides that have malfunctioned or detached. This can lead to entrapment, suffocation and fall inuries in infants and young children.
The cribs were sold exclusively through the Pottery Barn Kids catalog, www.potterybarnkids.com , and at Pottery Barn Kids retail stores nationwide from January 1999 through March 2010. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
