Cribs Recalled Because of Fall Hazard

Comments Off

Munire Furniture Inc., in cooperation with the CPSC, announced a voluntary crib recall of about 24,000 cribs due to a fall hazard.

The recalled cribs were sold under many different brand names including: Brighton/Sussex Cribs, Captiva Cribs, Essex Cribs, Majestic Curved Top and Flat Top Cribs.

The cribs fail to meet the federal safety standards for cribs. The four support brackets on the mattress support spring are too long. The brackets prevent the spring from lowering to the full 26 inch minimum height in its lowest position, allowing children inside to crawl over the railing, posing a fall hazard.

The following cribs with manufacture dates between November 1, 2005 and November 1, 2007 are included in the recall:

Majestic Curved Top cribs – Model No. 9500
Majestic Flat Top cribs – Model No. 9000
Essex cribs – Model No. 7100
Brighton/Sussex cribs – Model No. 9100
Captiva cribs – Model No. 5100

The model number can be found on the bottom inside of the right side rail. The manufacture date is printed on the white label near the model number or on the white label at the bottom of the headboard.

Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled cribs and to contact Munire Furniture to arrange free replacement brackets.
