Entanglement Threat Prompts Recall of Pottery Barn Kids Crib Bumpers

Posted on May 31, 2013

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.
