On May 6, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and C&T International/Sorelle announced a safety recall of approximately 170,000 drop-side cribs sold under the brand names C&T International, Sorelle, or Golden Baby from January 2000 to March 2010.
The recall includes all of the above full-size crib brands, sold in natural, white, and cherry finishes. The following model names and numbers are affected by the recall:
The recalled cribs have defective hardware that can cause the drop side to disengage from the tracks and detach from the crib. Infants are in danger of falling from the crib if the drop side detaches, and the space between the crib mattress and the drop side can suffocate, strangle, or entrap infants.
To date, the C&T International/Sorelle has received 104 reports of incidents involving the drop sides detaching from the cribs, with six reports of infants suffering from bruises and abrasions to the head, face, torso, or leg from falling or becoming entrapped when the drop side disengaged.
The cribs were sold nationwide for $300-$600. The CPSC advises parents and caregivers to immediately stop using any recalled cribs and contact the company at 877-791-9398 to receive a free replacement kit.
