May 8, 2015 — Thousands of cribs and matching furniture pieces have been recalled because the paint contains toxic levels of lead.
The recall was issued by Baby’s Dream Furniture for products sold nationwide under the Brie, Braxton, Heritage, Everything Nice, and Legendary collections.
About 1,200 full-size cribs are included in the recall. Furniture pieces include matching hutches, nightstands, bookcases, and chests. They were sold nationwide and online from March 2014 through March 2015.
According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC):
“The vintage grey paint on the cribs, furniture, and accessories exceeds federal lead limits. If ingested, lead can cause adverse health effects.”
Lead is toxic for everyone, but children and infants are especially vulnerable. Unfortunately, even small small amounts of lead are poisonous.
It can be absorbed through the skin or ingested on flakes of paint. Ingestion can result in a wide range of short-term and chronic health problems, including delayed development, behavior problems, headaches, irritability, trouble sleeping, and more.
No reports of lead poisoning have been linked to the products. The manufacturer asks customers to contact them at 800-835-2742 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday to arrange for a recall. For more information, visit www.babysdream.com and click on the recall image.
