Health Canada and phil & teds USA Inc. have recalled the phil & teds traveller portable travel cot version 3 due to a choking hazard. The recalled products have a serial number beginning with TRV3RV.
The recall was triggered after Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program determined that these cribs do not meet the Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations in Canada and may pose a choking hazard. Specifically, the four plastic clips that attach the mattress to the bottom of the crib do not meet the requirements. Neither Health Canada nor phil & teds has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these cribs in Canada.
Approximately 5,823 units of the recalled products were sold in Canada between February 2013 and September 2016.
