Ottawa -

About 1,200 drop-side cribs sold in Canada between 2001 and 2004 are being recalled after reports of three infant suffocation deaths south of the border.

Health Canada announced Wednesday the recall involves model numbers 592081, 592681 and 597431 for drop-side cribs made by Generation 2 Worldwide in the United States and China.

The recalled cribs carry the name "Generation 2 Worldwide" or "ChildESIGNS" and were sold by major retailers nationwide, including The Bay and Sears Canada.

Health Canada says the cribs' plastic hardware can break or deform, causing the drop-side to detach.

The mattress support can also detach from the crib frame, creating a space toddlers can roll into and become entrapped.

Neither Health Canada nor the cribs distributor, Elfe Juvenile Products of Toronto and Montreal, has received reports of injuries or incidents related to the use of these products in Canada, the agency says.

Health Canada is warning consumers to immediately stop using the recalled cribs.

Consumers may contact Elfe Juvenile Products at 1-800-667-8184.
