Largest crib recall in history...

Another crib recall....The Consumer Product Safety Commision has instructed consumers to stop using 2.1 million Stork Craft drop side cribs. There have been a number of cases in which the drop down sides became detached which resulted in injury and death. In the past two years nearly 5 million drop down side cribs have been recalled and the CPSC is discussing banning drop down side cribs all together. According to The Consumer Reports Safety Blog ...

The Stork Craft cribs were manufactured between January 1993 and October 2009. The recall also includes Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo that were manufactured between October 1997 and December 2004. The Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo were first sold in the U.S. and Canada in 1998. The manufacture date, model number, crib name, country of origin, and the firm’s name, address, and contact information are located on the assembly instruction sheet attached to the mattress support board. The firm’s insignia “storkcraft baby” or “storkling” is inscribed on the drop-side teething rail of some cribs. In Stork Craft cribs with the “Fisher-Price” logo, the logo can be found on the crib’s teething rail, in the manufacturer’s instructions, on the assembly instruction sheet attached to the mattress support board, and on the end panels of some models.

The cribs were sold at major retailers in the U.S. and Canada including BJ’s Wholesale Club, J.C. Penney, K mart, Meijer, Sears, USA Baby, and Wal-Mart stores and online at Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com, Costco.com, Target.com and Walmart.com from January 1993 through October 2009 for between $100 and $400.

If you are using one of these cribs please find a safe place for your child to safely sleep until you can find a replacement.
