RECALL ALERT: Cribs Recalled by ducduc Due to Fall and Entrapment Hazards

A recall has been issued for certain ducduc fixed-side cribs. The bottom rails on the crib sides can separate from the sides when the mattress is in the lowest position, causing the spindles to separate and the mattress to drop. This poses fall and entrapment hazards for young children. 5 reports have been made of separated rails, with no injuries. For the exact model names and item codes please see the full recall notice. The name “ducduc” and the item code can be found on a label located on the mattress panel. Models include AJ, Austin (shown), Cabana, Campaign and Parker.

These cribs were sold at the ducduc New York showroom, online at www.ducducnyc.com, at specialty stores and through interior designers nationwide from January 2009 through February 2011.

Consumers should stop using these cribs immediately if the mattress is in the lowest position. Contact ducduc for a free repair kit which includes new crib sides, if you have not already been contacted by the company. Ducduc is contacting each customer directly. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for their child, such as a play yard, bassinet or toddler bed, depending on the child’s age.

For additional information, contact ducduc at (212) 226-1868 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, or visit the firm’s website at www.ducducnyc.com
