Pottery Barn Kids has announced the recall of specific crib bumpers due to an entanglement hazard.
Affected by this recall is the Sweet Lambie Crib Bumpers manufactured from April 2009 through July 2012. It has been discovered that the thread in the decorative stitching on the bumper can loosen, posing an entanglement hazard to infants.
Manufactured in China, this affects approximately 12,000 bumper sets. The cotton bumpers are padded and fit standard cribs. Lambs in grass and lambs with trees are embroidered on the interior and exterior of the bumpers. They were available in the colors pink, blue and ivory/oatmeal.
The model number appears on a tag fastened to the bottom edge of the bumpers. Model number “708859,” “708917” or “7988348” and “Sweet Lambie Bumper” are affected by the recall. The date of manufacture in MM/YYYY format is printed on a tag attached to the bumper near the model number tag.
To date, two reports of the decorative stitching coming loose and entangling children, including reports of the thread wrapping around a child’s neck have been received, though no serious injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately check the tag on the bumper for the month and year of manufacture and stop using the bumpers.
