Reason for recall

The slats on the drop side can detach from the top and bottom rails creating a space between the slats. 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.
The CPSC received 16 reports of detached slats, but no reports of injuries.
