Other Crib Recalls: Convertible Cribs by Playkids USA
Convertible cribs are manufactured by Playkids USA. Playkids USA has recently announced that, in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), it is recalling its line of convertible cribs. The recall involves approximately 2,000 units. The reason is that the sides of the crib are made of mesh, but when the mesh expands it creates room for an infant’s body to become entrapped in that space, leading to a risk of injuries and even suffocation.
This recall was prompted by a report of a 5-month-old infant in Brooklyn, NY who became trapped in that problematic space and suffocated as a result. Specifically, the 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. The model number can be found on the packaging.
