On June 24th, 2010 the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall of certain Child Craft brand cribs with a drop-side feature that were manufactured between 2000 and 2009 by Child Craft Industries, Inc and Child Craft, LLC. At the same time the CPSC announced a recall on the Child Craft model number F36101 fixed-side crib because it has components that may be installed up side down and, as a result of improper assembly, may present a safety risk.

On July 31, 2009, Foundations Worldwide, Inc. purchased the Child Craft brand and a select group of other assets from Child Craft, LLC. Foundations did not design, manufacture or sell the cribs that are the subject of this recall and we assumed no product liabilities from Child Craft LLC. Child Craft LLC has ceased operations.

No Foundations brand cribs are subject to this recall.

Though Foundations has no obligation to do so, Foundations believes that it is appropriate to take steps to ease consumer’s needs and concerns about these cribs. Please note that, in order to determine whether a crib is subject to either recall, you must have available the model number and the manufacture date that is printed on the label on the inside bottom rail of the crib.

Child Craft Drop-Side Cribs
