PT Domusindo Perdana Drop-Side Cribs recalled due to entrapment and suffocation

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled 14 PT Domusindo Perdana Drop-Side Cribs due to entrapment and suffocation hazards. Consumers should stop using this product. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Recall date: March 26, 2013

Recall number: 13-151

Name of product: PT Domusindo Perdana drop-side cribs

Hazard: The cribs' drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact customer service at Modus Furniture International to get a free immobilizer kit that will immobilize the drop side. The immobilizer kits will be available in May 2013. In the meantime, parents are encouraged to find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on your child's age.

Consumer Contact: Modus Furniture International at (800) 827-2129 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at and click on the Recall tab for more information.
