Baby furniture manufacturer LaJobi Inc. is recalling almost 5,000 of its drop-side cribs because of defects that can pose an entrapment and strangulation risk for infants.

The specific crib models being recalled by New Jersey-based LaJobi are:

  • Babi Italia "Pinehurst" Drop Side Cribs - Sold exclusively by Babies "R" Us from December 2006 through December 2007, for about $300.
  • Bonavita "Hudson" Drop Side Cribs - Sold at Baby Basics, Beautiful Beginnings, and Buy Buy Baby stores from December 2006 through December 2007, for about $300.
  • Bonavita "Cabana" Drop Side Cribs - Sold at USA Baby, Beautiful Beginnings, Buy Buy Baby and other stores nationwide, between January 2006 and May 2009, for about $450.

For both the "Pinehurst" and "Hudson" cribs, parents and caregivers should look for production dates from December 2006 through August 2007, printed on a label attached to the footboard or headboard. Cribs with those production dates have been recalled.

The problem with the "Pinehurst" and "Hudson" cribs is that a mechanism defect can cause the drop side to detach, creating a gap that poses a suffocation, entrapment, and fall risk. Get detailed information on the "Pinehurst" and "Hudson" crib recall: CPSC News Release.

For the "Cabana" cribs, parents and caregivers should look for production dates between 01 JAN 2006 and 31 OCT 2008, which is printed (along with other identifying information) on a label on the inside bottom rail of the headboard or footboard.

The problem with the "Cabana" cribs is that wooden slats can break or come off, and the resulting gap poses an entrapment and strangulation risk to infants and toddlers. Get detailed information on the "Cabana" crib recall: CPSC News Release.
