From A Press Release
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall for about 73 thousand baby cribs made by PT Domusindo Perdana of Indonesia and sold at J.C. Penney.com and the JCPenney catalog between January 1998 and December 2008.
The cribs' drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position, creating a space 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 with age-related wear and tear.
This recall includes 14 models of PT Domusindo Perdana wooden drop-side cribs. The name, model number and date codes are printed on the plywood mattress board.

CPSC and the firm are aware of three incidents involving drop side rails that malfunctioned or detached. No injuries were reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact customer service at Modus Furniture International to get a free immobilizer kit that will immobilize the drop side. The immobilizer kits will be available in May 2013. In the meantime, parents are encouraged to find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on your child's age.
