Jenny Lind Crib Recall: How to Make Sure Your Baby's Bed Is Safe
Parents, are you worried about the safety of your child's crib? Did you know that many Jenny Lind baby cribs have been recalled due to safety issues? In 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released an official recall of the Jenny Lind crib. The recall included all models of the crib, which were made sometime between 2000 and 2007. A defective crib can be dangerous and potentially deadly for your baby, as it has been shown that they may fall out or even suffocate in a faulty crib.
While it's illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled crib, many parents unknowingly purchase used Jenny Lind baby furniture for their children. That's why it is crucial to ensure that any second-hand or recycled nursery items are not part of the recall before you buy them and bring home your new bundle of joy.
It can be overwhelming to keep track of all of the different recalls that are issued each year. DoNotPay can help you check your crib, car seat, and other baby products to make sure they are safe for your child.
What Happened With Jenny Lind Crib Recall?
The official Jenny Lind Crib recall was issued due to an issue with the drop-side hardware on some models. The faulty hinges and latches may not lock correctly, which means that if your baby is sleeping in a Jenny Lind crib that contains these parts, they could fall out or suffocate when their head gets stuck between the broken part of the side rail and the mattress.
Thankfully, there were no deaths due to this faulty hardware; however, there were several reports of babies getting stuck in the crib, and another child was reportedly injured by falling out.
Drop-Side Cribs Banned in 2011
In 2011, the CPSC voted to ban drop-side cribs altogether. This means that if your Jenny Lind baby furniture was made before this time, it is likely still legal to use in most states. However, many parents choose not to take a risk with their child's safety and avoid using any used crib at all for this reason.
Why Is It Important to Know if Your Jenny Lind Crib Was Recalled?
While it's important to know that your child's crib has not been recalled, it can also be just as dangerous for them to sleep in a drop-side crib. If you are interested in purchasing second-hand baby furniture but would like some help making sure none of it is recalled, sign up for DoNotPay.
