WASHINGTON (AP) About 90,000 Bassettbaby drop-side cribs with external plastic hardware are being recalled.
The cribs were sold by Bassett Furniture Industries Inc. of Bassett, Va. They were manufactured in China, Croatia, Slovenia, Taiwan and Vietnam.
The cribs' drop-side rail can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to detach from the crib and create a space that allows an infant or toddler to become entrapped, strangled or suffocate, or fall out of the crib.
There have been 18 reported incidents of the drop side malfunctioning or detaching from the crib, but none resulted in injuries. Details: By phone at 800-308-7485 or on Bassett's website.
