Why does my crib have so many warning labels and stickers on it?

These are required by law and the CPSC has very specific laws regarding label size and placing.  The stickers contain important safety information, and it is recommended that you do not try to remove these labels as this could scratch or damage the finish.

We ordered and just received the Arlington crib and we are very happy with it, however, the warning labels are a bit ridiculous.  Who wants those on their crib, especially in such blatantly visible spots???  I understand there are laws regarding these, but at least use an adhesive on them that is appropriate for a wood finish so they can be removed if desired!!!!  This is not a Wal-Mart crib, and these stickers make it look just plain cheap, laws or no laws.  There has to be some other way to warn parents of these hazards.  Needless to say, I am very irritated at these warning labels and the difficulty I have had in attempting to remove the one I have so far.

Hi Tara,

I'm very sorry to hear how disappointed you are with the Arlington crib. As you know we are required by law to place the warning labels in a visible area and we are also required to use a specific adhesive. We are not allowed to use something that would make it easier for the consumer to peel off. Again we are very sorry.

Does the conversion kit come with slates?

With our bed rails you will only need the box spring and mattress.  You won’t need any type of slats or board for support. There is a lip on the bed rails and the box spring rests on the lip and the box spring is the only support you will need for the mattress.

Hope this helps,

Hi Jacky-

I'm sorry but the Grayson has been discontinued.

We have a new crib coming in April called the Origami Mini Crib

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello,

Are the larger stickers made to go on the inside part of the crib or outside?  We put the Jayden 4 in 1 crib together and my husband had the larger stickers on the outside.  Does it matter?  I don't want to sound dumb but I am asking because he is certain that the pieces were marked and I don't think it would matter if on left or right.


Thank you,

Laura

Hi Laura-

Unfortunately, the pieces cannot be interchanged and that's how the crib is.  Some of the stickers are required by law to be on the outside.

There are a few stickers that are meant to be on the inside of the side rail, however.  

If you have further questions, please email us at parts@mdbmail.com with a photo of the sticker and we can take a look.

Sincerely,

The MDB Family

I just ordered the Hudson crib and am rather displeased about all of the labels on it (which my husband and I have been trying to remove for the past hour).  You know what drives a pregnant woman crazy?  Removing labels for over an hour.  I understand that these labels are required by law but as far as I can tell, the CPSC does not specify the exact type of adhesive that must be used on these labels--just states that they should be "permanent".  In any case, the pictures on your website show the crib WITHOUT labels on the outside, so if you insist that they should be permanently affixed to the crib, you should show that in your product depictions online.

I am very glad that I came on to this site. I will be calling the retailer to cancel my order. It's very disappointing because I've already waited a month for the product. The display in the store is perfect and has no visible stickers. All products require warning labels and I purchased a crib years ago that also had warning labels, but the labels didn't do anything to the look of the product. I can't believe your selling a product at the prices your selling them and can't warn the consumer without damaging the look. Your company isn't the only company selling baby beds. I have not seen this on any bed that I've previously purchased from other merchants. Now I have to start all over again. I purchased the Wakefield collection.

The warning labels are ridiculous and I specifically asked the retailer about them before I ordered the product. I was assured they would come off and if there were any issues, I would be sent parts to correct it. I have been in product development for 9over 10 years and it is pd 101 that you do NOT place these labels where your company places them. I already waited 4 months for his crib, so I expect an answer other than don't take the stickers off...this is unacceptable.

And to C Yu's point, none of the marketing photos for your cribs show the warning labels, so this is dishonest advertising.

Also, I already ordered and received the matching dresser, so of there are issues with this crib, I will hold your company responsible for taking care of everything. I've already spent way too many hours, money, etc. to now be dealing with the possible issue that the stickers can't be removed. Plus, 2 parts were damaged when I opened this crib today. Not happy with your company so far and you not taking care of the problem will be an issue.

The placement of the warning labels is not determined by our product development team. It is required by law from the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission). The size of the label, the font size, the adhesive, and the location is all set by the CPSC.

I have forward your concerns to our production team to see if there is any way we can make any improvements regarding this issue. 

For any replacement parts request please fill out all of the appropriate information at the following link http://www.franklinandben.com/parts

I hope this has been helpful.
