The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced on Friday a voluntary recall from three different companies affecting a total of 40,650 drop side cribs due to safety risk for infants and toddlers.

The three companies affected by this Drop Side Crib Recall 2010 are Angel Line, Victory Land and Ethan Allen, in which each of them has a separate recall notice from CPSC on their website.

Free repair kits will be provided by each company when you contact them with the given contact numbers, which can also be seen below as you are reading this post.

All of them were said to have found a high possibility of having their rail hardware malfunction, detach or fail, which may create a space that can cause the body of infants or toddlers to be entrapped, and can lead harm or falling off from the crib.

For importer Angel Line, of Pennsville, N.J, affected recall quantity is 3,400 drop-side cribs, which were reported to be sold online at Ababy.com, Babyage.com and other online retailers from December 2004 to January 2009 for about $140.

The said products were said to be manufactured in China, with one incident wherein the crib’s drop side was detached but no injuries has been reported.

The model numbers affected are 6103S, 6105S, 6106S, 6108S, 6109S, 8025P, and 8029P, which are printed on a label on the crib’s headboard.

Meanwhile, the company’s firm’s fixed-side cribs and drop-side cribs with metal rod-type hardware are not included in this recall, CPSC said.

For additional information, customers are being advised to contact Angel Line at (800) 889-8158 anytime, or to visit the company’s website at Angelline.com.
