Direct link: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Nan-Far-Woodworking-Recalls-Rockland-Furniture-Round-Cribs/

Additional information:2309 - RocklandRoundCrib
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall concerns some Rockland Furniture Round Cribs bearing model number 343-8314. The model number is printed on a label located on the inner-lower portion of the crib rail. The cribs are 44-1/2 inches in diameter and were sold in white, ebony and cherry finishes.

According to the CPSC, the recalled Crib’s drop-side rails can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail. When this happens, the drop-side rail can fall out of position and create a space where an infant or toddler can become wedged or entrapped, posing a risk of strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. In addition, drop-side related incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.
