Pottery Barn Kids Recalls Approximately 12,000 Sweet Lambie Crib Bumpers Due To Entanglement Hazard

Pottery Barn Kids Recalls Approximately 12,000 Sweet Lambie Crib Bumpers Due To Entanglement Hazard

In early May, the CPSC announced that Williams-Sonoma agreed to pay a civil penalty of $987,500 for failure to immediately report a product defect in October 2008. Pottery Barn, which is a division of Williams-Sonoma, recalled approximately 30,000 Chesapeake Hammock Stands due to a wood deterioration problem that could cause the beams to break. However, the company had already received 45 incident reports before they issued the recall, including 12 incidents that had resulted in injuries.

Yesterday, Williams-Sonoma issued a recall for one of its Pottery Barn Kids products due to an entanglement hazard. The company is recalling approximately 12,000 Sweet Lambie Crib Bumpers that were sold in Pottery Barn Kids stores, catalogs, Pottery Barn Outlet stores, and on potterybarnkids.com from April 2009 through July 2012. The crib bumpers, which were manufactured by Pure Mars of China and came in a variety of colors, sold for between $129 and $149.

According to the CPSC, “[t]he thread in the decorative stitching on the bumper can loosen, posing an entanglement hazard to infants.” Consumers should immediately identify whether the recall affects their Sweet Lambie Crib Bumper, as the company has received two reports of loose stitching, including an incident of thread wrapping around a child’s neck.

Recalled bumpers, which are padded and created for standard cribs, feature a material design of lambs in grass and lambs with trees. Bumpers that were manufactured from April 2009 through July 2012 with model numbers “708859,” “708917,” and “7988348” are included in the recall.  Consumers can check the date of manufacture and the model number on the product’s tags.

Consumers should immediately stop use of the bumper and identify whether they own an affected model. Owners of recalled bumpers should contact Pottery Barn to receive a replacement bumper or a full refund on a gift card, and the company will issue free shipping for the recalled bumpers. Consumers can contact Pottery Barn Kids at (855) 323-5138 from 7 a.m. to midnight ET, or online at potterybarnkids.com. For more information, individuals can visit the website and click on “product recalls” at the bottom of the page.
