BETHESDA, Md., (WUSA) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 8,000 Yu Wei drop side cribs.

The crib's drop-side rail can detach or fall down unexpectedly and create a space where an infant or toddler can roll and become wedge or entrapped. 

The malfunction can cause a child to fall out of the crib, suffocate or strangle.

The CPSC says there have been nine incidents of where the rails malfunctioned and one report of minor abrasions to a child's arm.

The Yu Wei full size cribs were sold exclusively at under the names of Scroll, model #343-8225 and Lauren, model #343-9117, for between $300 and $450. 

Consumers should stop using these recalled cribs immediately and contact the company at (877) 806-8190 to receive a free immobilizer kit. 

Or you can visit the Yu Wei website, for more information.  

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission wants you to know that it is illegal to resell a recalled product.
