WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Importer: J.C. Penney Purchasing Corp., of Plano, Texas 
 
Manufacturer(s): Yu Wei Co. Ltd., of Taipei, Taiwan (this firm is no longer in business) 
 
Manufactured in: Taiwan
 
Name of Product:  Drop-Side Cribs
 
Sold: JCPenney.com and in the jcpenney catalog from January 2006 through December 2010 for between $300 and $450.
 
Hazard: The drop-side rails on the crib can malfunction, detach or unexpectedly fall down, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position. When this happens, a space is created into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and due to age-related wear and tear.
 
Incidents/Injuries: CPSC and the firms are aware of nine incidents involving drop side rails that malfunctioned or detached, including one report of a child who sustained minor abrasions to the arm.
