Recalled Pottery Barn Crib All righty, campers, in today’s baby crib recall news … Pottery Barn Kids just recalled 82,000 drop-side cribs to the usual round-up of ghastly hazards – entrapment, suffocation and falls. In this case, the sides detach when the hardware breaks, or if the crib has been improperly assembled, or if it’s an old, much-used crib. PBK has had 36 reports of drop side malfunction, including 7 minor injuries. One child’s head was caught between the mattress and the drop side, but was not injured. Parents were sure freaked out, though. There are several models implicated in the recall, so follow the link to see if yours is one – then contact PB for a conversion kit to immobilize the drop side.
