Rockland Furniture Recalls to Repair Drop-Side Cribs Due to Entrapment, Suffocation and Fall Hazards
Sold Exclusively at jcpenney.
Consumers can contact us for an immobilization kit sent at no charge.
What is this safety recall about?
The cribs’ drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear. Please see the official press release here on CPSC's website.
How will my crib be repaired?
An immobilization kit will be sent out to you free of charge provided you have one of the affected cribs listed below. This kit will allow you to install over the existing dropside hardware making the drop side "static" or unmovable. Please note that this kit will ONLY fit the following cribs listed below and not on any other drop side crib.
