Portable cribs

Kolcraft Enterprises Inc. of Chicago is reminding consumers not to use Playskool Travel-Lite portable cribs because children can suffocate if the side rails are not locked in position properly and collapse.

Though the company voluntarily recalled 11,638 Playskool Travel-Lite cribs in February 1993, a death was reported in May 1998. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has received four other reports of infant deaths due to suffocation.

The Playskool Travel-Lite models 77101 and 77103 were manufactured by Kolcraft and sold nationwide from 1990 to 1992. They have two nylon mesh sides and two blue solid plastic ends. "Playskool" appears in white letters on a red background on each end. The crib folds in the center for storage and handling.
