MONTEBELLO, Calif. (KRON) — Several models of the DaVinci brand crib is being recalled over concerns that infants can get trapped in the crib.
According to the company, one of the four metal brackets that connect to the mattress support can break, causing a gap and an uneven sleeping surface for the baby. That can lead to a child getting trapped. The problem can also cause a baby to fall or suffer lacerations from the broken metal bracket.
DaVinci says there are concerns that a child could become seriously injured or asphyxiate if they fall through the gap.
The recall affects the following models: Reagan M2801, Emily M4791, Jamie M7301, Jenny Lind M7391 for cribs that were manufactured from May 2012 through Dec. 2012. The cribs were sold at stores nationwide including Target and online at Amazon.com at a cost of $150 to $250.
The model number, serial number, and manufacture date are printed on a label fixed to the bottom right hand side panel of the crib.
If you purchased one of these cribs, DaVinci says stop using it immediately and contact them. The company says it will send you a new mattress support and everything you will need to upgrade the crib to make it safer.
