    June 24, 2008 -- The crib company Jardine is recalling about 320,000 of its cribs because of the risk of entrapment and strangulation.

    Consumers should stop using the recalled cribs immediately, says the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

    "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.

    The recall only includes the following model numbers of Jardine's Berkley, Hilton, Positano, Spindle, and Windsor cribs:

    • Model BC-23: Drop Side Blue Spindle Crib
    • Model BC-36B: Drop Side Light Blue Spindle Crib
