Expansion of December 12, 2017 recall
Shermag Harrison convertible 4 in 1 crib.
This recall expansion expands the previous recall to include all lot numbers and colours of Shermag Harrison 4 in 1 cribs.
|Model Name||Model Number||UPC|
The hardware on the cribs can become loose and detach, allowing the sides of the crib to widen, creating a hazardous gap in which infants and toddlers can become wedged or entrapped, posing risks of suffocation and strangulation. Hardware failures can also lead to the crib to collapse as sides may detach.
As of January 10, 2019 the company has received two reports of a gap appearing on a crib side in Canada, and no reports of injuries.
