Angel Line Recalls to Repair Longwood Forest Drop-Side Cribs Due to Entrapment, Suffocation, and Fall Hazards
October 22, 2010 - The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CSPC) today announced the recall of about 3,400 Drop-Side Cribs imported by Angel Line, of Pennsville, N.J.
The crib’s drop-side rail hardware can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop-side rail to detach from the crib. When the drop-side rail partially detaches, it creates a space between the drop side and the crib mattress. An infant or toddler’s body can become entrapped in the space, which can lead to strangulation and/or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents also can occur due to age-related wear and tear.
This recall involves the following models of Longwood Forest drop-side cribs with plastic drop-side hardware:
The cribs being recalled were sold in white, brown, natural and oak colors. “Longwood Forest” or “Angel Line” and the model number are printed on a label on the crib’s headboard.
