The CPSC announced that Babies “R” Us has recalled 320,000 Jardine baby cribs sold from January 2002 through May 2008 at Kids Rold, Geoffrey Stores, Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores.  The cribs sold for between $150 and $300.  The wooden slats and spindles on the crib can break easily, causing a space where infants can get stuck, which poses a strangulation hazard.  There have been 42 reports of cribs breaking, including four incidents where children were entrapped and two incidents of children sustaining bruising and abrasions.   The Jardine recall website lists the model numbers of the cribs involved in the recall and the process involved in getting a voucher for a replacement crib.
