Product description

This recall involves Mathew & Lauren collection cribs, identified by model 8700-700.  The recalled product is a crib that can be converted into a double bed.  The model number can be found on the product's packaging and on a label on the inside of the side panel.

As of December 2, 2016, Mother Hubbard's Cupboards has received no reports of incidents or injuries.
