    Stop using those cribs immediately and contact LaJobi for a free kit that will immobilize the drop side. Call LaJobi at 888-8423-2215 anytime, or visit the safety information page of the company's web site.

    The problem: The cribs' drop-side hardware can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib. That can create a gap between the drop side and the mattress, posing a risk of entrapment, suffocation, strangulation, or falling out of the crib, according to the CPSC.

    Reported cases: The CPSC and LaJobi have gotten 99 reports of drop-side incidents, including hardware breaking and the drop side detaching.

    In two cases, children became entrapped in the gap created by the detached drop side; both kids were freed by their caregivers.

    There have also been six reports of children falling from the cribs due to drop-side failure, including one report of a mild concussion.

    In a statement emailed to WebMD, LaJobi states that it is "confident" that the free hardware conversion kit "will address these safety concerns." The company says it has moved "swiftly and decisively, in full cooperation with the CPSC" on the crib recall.
