Jardine Enterprises is recalling about 96,000 cribs, the third crib recall the company has issued in a year. The slats on the recalled cribs can break, leaving a gap where small children can get trapped or strangled.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says it has received 31 reports of broken slats and two reports of children getting trapped. Ten of the incidents were caused when a child broke the slats from inside the crib.

The cribs were sold at Toys "R" Us, Babies "R" Us, KidsWorld and Geoffrey stores around the country, as well as on www.babiesrus.com. They were available between September 2005 and April 2009.

The Taiwanese company recalled about 320,000 cribs in June 2008 and another 56,450 in January.
