PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Attention parents: thousands of cribs are being recalled for high levels of lead.
Everything goes into a toddler’s mouth — including their crib rails. This week, a major manufacturer is recalling thousands of cribs after they were found to violate the federal lead paint standard.
Baby’s Dream is recalling cribs and furniture because the vintage grey paint on the products and accessories exceed federal lead limits. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, if ingested the lead can cause adverse health affects.
The recall involves Baby’s Dream full-size cribs and furniture sold under the Brie, Braxton, Heritage names — including furniture manufactured between March 2014 and March 2015 in Chile.
