Hufco-Delaware and Evenflo Company Have Recalled Gerry® and Evenflo® Portable Wood Cribs

Miamisburg, OH (SafetyAlerts) - Hufco-Delaware Company has recalled about 364,000 portable wood cribs. If the hardware used to assemble the crib is not tight, the mattress support platform and mattress can fall to the floor. This poses a risk of injury to young children in the crib.

There have been 41 reports of mattresses falling through portable wood cribs. Of these incidents, 17 children suffered bumps, bruises or scratches.

The portable cribs are made of wood and are smaller than traditional baby cribs. The majority of these portable wood cribs were sold under the Gerry® brand name, and some were sold under the Evenflo® brand name. The recalled portable wood cribs have one of the following model numbers that can be found on a label on the mattress platform underneath the mattress:

8212 8222 8232 8242 8252 8282
8301 8302 8311 8312 8321 8322 8331
8332 8341 8342 8351 8352 8381 8382
8512 8522 8532 8542 8552 8582  
8712 8752


Department and baby products stores nationwide sold these portable wood cribs from January 1991 through December 2002 for about $99.

Consumers should stop using these portable wood cribs immediately, and call (800) 582-9359 anytime for a free upgrade kit that provides additional support for the mattress platform. Consumers also can obtain further information about the portable wood cribs by logging onto www.evenflo.com (eventually this link will also be at www.portablewoodcrib.com).
