Approximately 6,000 full-size DaVinci cribs were recalled by Bexco Enterprises, Inc. earlier this month, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. This is in addition to the 11,600 units that were recalled in July of this year.
The product has faulty metal brackets connecting the mattress support to the crib, causing a gap and an uneven surface. If an accident occurs, babies may fall, sustain lacerations from the metal brackets, or become trapped in the crib.
The recalled models are the Reagan (#M2801), Emily (#M4791), Jamie (#M7301), and Jenny Lind (#M7391); the recall specifies those units which were manufactured between May 2012 and December 2012. The model, serial number, and manufacture date are printed to the bottom right hand side panel of the cribs. The units were sold nationwide at Target, juvenile products stores, and Amazon.com from May 2012 to December 2013. Anyone currently in possession is advised to cease use of this product and contact Bexco for a replacement.
