    Oct. 22, 2010 -- About 40,000 drop-side cribs, including 34,000 Heritage cribs sold only at Kmart, have been recalled over entrapment, suffocation, and fall hazards.

    No children have died, but there have been 23 reported injuries from the cribs in the latest recall.

    The danger is that the cribs' drop sides can detach or malfunction, causing the drop-side rail to partially detach. Children can get trapped in the space, resulting in strangulation, suffocation, cuts, bruises, and falls.

    The recalled cribs include:

    • About 34,000 Heritage Collection 3-in-1 drop-side cribs sold at Kmart from February 2007 through October 2008. The model numbers, on the inside of the inner side of the headboard or footboard on the bottom rail, are 07-1248 and 07-1252.
    • About 3,250 drop-side cribs sold at Ethan Allen stores between January 2002 through December 2008. Item numbers, found on a label on the cribs' headboards or footboards, are 14-5650, 15-5650, 16-5650, 26-5650, 35-5622, 36-5620, 36-5622 and 38-5622.
    • About 3,400 "Longwood Forest" and "Angel Line" drop-side cribs sold over the web. Model numbers, printed on a label on the cribs' headboards, are 6103S, 6105S, 6106S, 6108S, 6109S, 8025P, and 8029P.

    At the same time it announced the recalls, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced its "A Safe Sleep for All Babies" campaign. The effort includes a crib safety video on the web site, an effort to educate new parents, and development of new crib standards.
