Veronic and Carrera 3 in 1 Convertible Cribs

Product description

This recall involves the Veronic and Carrera Convertible Cribs.   The recalled crib is a 3 in 1 crib that can be converted to a day bed or double bed (separate extension required). The recalled crib is 154 cm in length X 81 cm in width and 116 cm in height. The Veronic crib was sold in grey, java, white and off white colours with product codes VCB-320, VERO-CR-SG2, VERO-CR-WH1, VERO-CR-CW1, and VERO-CR-JV1.  The Carrera crib was sold in espresso colour with the product codes CARR-CR-ES1 and CARR-CR-ES2. The product codes can be found on a label on the lower part of the headboard of the crib. The affected products were sold on their own and as part of collections containing other products.

Hazard identified

Some of the bolts supplied with the crib were too narrow for the nuts embedded in the crib, resulting in improper assembly. Improper assembly of the crib or use of substitute hardware could pose a safety risk to the users of the crib.

Health Canada received one complaint in which the bolt and washer came loose from the crib. No injury resulted from this incident.
