Stork Craft cribs recalled after suffocation deaths
Tuesday, November 24, 2009
More than two million cribs distributed in the U.S. and Canada have been recalled because they leave infants and toddlers vulnerable to possible falls and suffocation. The cribs are made by Canadian manufacturer Stork Craft and include cribs with the Fisher Price logo that were first sold in 1998. Recalled cribs sold under the Stork Craft name were made as long ago as 1993. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Stork Craft are aware of four suffocation deaths of infants whose heads became trapped between the drop-side of the crib and the mattress. The CPSC says consumers should call Stork Craft for a free repair kit that will make the drop-side wall a fixed wall.
