A recall of cribs sold at Babies 'R' Us was expanded for a second time to include seven new models and 96,000 cribs bringing the total of recalled Jardine cribs to 472,450. The cribs were originally recalled in June (320,000), and then again in January (56,450), because the slats can break creating a gap in which a baby can become entrapped and strangled.
Today's recall was made after the company received an additional 31 reports of slats breaking including two reports of children becoming entrapped in the gap created by the broken slat. In 10 of these incidents, parents reported that their child broke the slat while in the crib. There was one report of minor injuries (bumps and abrasions). In the earlier recalls, Jardine reported 61 broken slat incidents in which four children became entrapped, one fell through the gap and several others were bruised.
Included in the most recent recall are these model numbers with the following date codes: 0102B00 (9/2005-1/2007); 0102E00 (9/2005-1/2008); 0302P00 (11/2005-5/2008); 0302C00 (6/2006-12/2006); 0312D00 (5/2006-11/2007); 0308L00 (12/2005-11/2007); 0108C00 (8/2006-11/2007). Model numbers and date codes for the earlier recalls can be found on the June and January recall notices. Look for the numbers on a label on the inside of the bottom rail of the headboard or footboard. Photos of all the recalled models are on the recall notices: April, January, June.
The cribs were sold at KidsWorld, Geoffrey Stores, Toys 'R' Us, and Babies 'R' Us stores nationwide, and at babiesrus.com, from September 2005 through April 2009 for between $220 and $330. Cribs from the earlier recalls had been on the market as early as 2002.

Update: Consumer Reports tested one of the recalled models—the 0102B00—for our most recent crib report and Ratings (for subscribers) but the one we purchased was made after the inclusive dates (9/2005-1/2007) cited in the recall.
I purchased a jardine cribe model #0312D00 6/2008, and the corner of the back side of the cribe is separating. I,m surprise all these cribes have not been recalled. Babies r us sold defected cribes. Now i must fight with jardine for replacement.My grandson has no crib and this makes it very unsafe for him.
We bought a Jardine crib model MD 832 BC and the stain is coming off in liquid form. My daughter was gumming the rail and the stain was all over her face. This concerns me and I think it needs to be recalled.
I bought a jardine crib, my son also chews at the rail, the paint is coming off, havent noticed it in liquid form, but it cant be good for him to ingest it. All the recalls are scaring me, my code is 0108L00.. Havent seen this number yet but im wondering if its just a matter of time before they do. I installed a camera so that I can see my son when he is in his crib at all times because I constantly worry about something happening to him.
