"The wooden crib slats and spindles can break, creating a gap, which can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants," states the CPSC's web site.
The CPSC has gotten reports of 42 incidents of crib slats and spindles breaking -- and of four children who became entrapped in the space created by a broken slat or spindle. Two of those children suffered scrapes and bruising.
