Approximately 17,000 Portable Cribs Recalled
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 19) -- Approximately 17,000 portable cribs are being recalled by the Questor Juvenile Furniture Company, of Piqua, Ohio, because the bottom of the cribs may separate from the sides, allowing an infant to fall to the floor. The recall is being conducted voluntarily in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. CPSC staff has been informed of 36 incidents since 1979, in which infants fell to the floor when the soft vinyl crib "basket" became unstitched from the net sides. Four infants were reported injured. The recall pertains only to model 320 "Kantwet Trav-L-Cribs" that do not contain a date code on the reverse side of the large white "law tag" attached to the crib mattress, The cribs are constructed of a colored vinyl "basket" with net sides hung on a collapsible metal frame. The model number, 320, is located on the front of the law tag. If the tag has a date code on its reverse side, the crib is not being recalled. The cribs were manufactured between January and June, 1979, and sold for approximately $35 in retail stores east of the Rocky Mountains. The cribs were not marketed west of the Rockies. Consumers who own a non-date-coded model 320 "Kantwet Trav-L- Crib" can obtain a free replacement unit by mailing a six-inch- bysix-inch swatch of materiai cut from the vinyl basket plus the white law tag from the mattress to: "Trav-L-Crib," 1801 Commerce Drive, Piqua, Ohio, 45356.
