The thread in the decorative stitching on the bumper can loosen, posing an entanglement hazard to infants.

Pottery Barn Kids Recalls Sweet Lambie Crib Bumpers

This recall involves about 12,000 Pottery Barn Kids Sweet Lambie Bumpers manufactured from April 2009 through July 2012. The cotton bumpers are padded and fit standard cribs. Lambs in grass and lambs with trees are embroidered on the interior and exterior of the bumpers.

They were available in the colors pink, blue and ivory/oatmeal. Model number “708859,” “708917” or “7988348” and “Sweet Lambie Bumper” appear on a tag fastened to the bottom edge of the bumpers.

Pottery Barn has received two reports of the decorative stitching coming loose and entangling children, including reports of the thread wrapping around a child’s neck. No serious injuries have been reported.
