Crib Recall Affects Millions of Families
If you have a drop-side crib you must check the brand and type immediately. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced their largest crib recall in history.
2.1 million Stork Craft drop-down-side cribs have been recalled. Four infants have died and at least 110 incidents have been reported. The issue is that the side of the crib detaches and babies can become entrapped between the side and the crib frame or fall out of the crib onto the floor.
Though the cribs were made by Stork Craft some have the Fisher-Price logo. To determine if you your crib is part of the recall please visit the CPSC website. You can also contact Stork Craft directly by calling their toll free number:
In the last two years more than 5 million cribs have been recalled. Some states and the CPSC have discussed banning the manufacture and sale of drop side cribs all together.
If you have a drop side crib, or any crib, it is best to ensure that your crib is not part of the recall and that it has been properly assembled.
