Entanglement Threat Prompts Recall of Pottery Barn Kids Crib Bumpers
12,000 or so Sweet Lambie Crib Bumpers are being recalled by Pottery Barn Kids. The company, itself a division of the San Francisco-based Williams-Sonoma, is recalling these bumpers because of the possibility that stitching on the embroidered lambs, grass, and trees found on the items can become loose. When this occurs, a baby positioned in the crib could be entangled by the thread, a hazard that can’t be underestimated. Already, one child has reportedly had the thread wrapped around its neck, although thankfully, he or she wasn’t hurt, nor was a child involved in another reported entanglement incident. Owners are advised to cease using the cribs if the bumper’s tag has a date between April 2009 and July 2012. Get in touch with Pottery Barn Kids for recall directions.
