RECALL: Mother Hubbard Cribs Due to Fall Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Mother Hubbard’s Cupboards, of Toronto, Canada have voluntarily recall about 1,300 cribs because the cribs fail to meet the federal safety standards. The distance between the mattress support bracket in the lowest position and the top of the side rail in the highest position is less than the required 26 inches, posing a fall hazard to children who climb over the railing.
The recall includes the following wooden full-size cribs: “Enchantment” (model #210), “Hush a Bye” (model #215), “Once upon a time” (model #320) and “Rock a bye” (model #1900-350). Only date codes from 0306 through 0308 are included in this recall. “Mother Hubbard’s Cupboards”, the model number and date code are printed on a label located on the bottom inside of the right side.
Parents and caregivers should stop using the cribs immediately and contact Mother Hubbard’s Cupboards at (888) 661-8201 (9 - 6 M-Th, 10 - 4 F,S) or visit the firm’s Web site at www.mhcfurniture.com to receive instructions on how to re-install the support brackets to eliminate the hazard.
