There have been several consumer recalls over the past couple of days that may affect Deal Seeking Mom readers. Please refer to the links included in each section for more details about the specific recalls:
Heritage Collection 3-in-1 Drop Side Cribs
Victory Land Group has recalled Heritage Collection 3-in-1 drop-side cribs sold exclusively at Kmart due to entrapment, suffocation and fall hazards. The crib's drop-side rail can malfunction, detach or otherwise fall, causing part of the drop-side to detach from the crib. When the drop-side rail partially detaches it creates a space between the drop side and the crib mattress where an infant or toddler's body can become entrapped leading to stragulation and/or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. The recall involves model numbers 07-1248 and 07-1252 that were sold in white and natural colors. A label with Kmart and the model number can be found on the inner side of the crib's headboard or footboard on the bottom rail. The affected cribs were sold in Kmart stores nationwide from February 2007 through October 2008 for about $130.
Consumers should immediately stop using the cribs and contact the Victory Land Group for a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop-side rail. For additional information, contact Victory Land Group at 866-499-2099 between 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm's website.
