Has your child been injured by a defective Stork Craft Baby Crib?
The federal agency in charge of product safety announced the recall of 2.1 million cribs manufactured by Stork Craft Manufacturing INC., of British Columbia, Canada, citing defective hardware that can cause toddlers and infants to suffocate.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said parents should immediately stop using Stork Craft drop-side cribs.
About 1.2 million of the cribs have been distributed in the United States and 968,000 units distributed in Canada.
The recall includes about 147,000 Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher-Price logo, the CPSC said.
The cribs were sold at major retailers including Sears, Wal-Mart, BJ’s Wholesale Club, J.C.Penney, Kmart, and online at Amazon.com and Target.com, Costco.com and Babiesrus.com between January 1993 and October 2009.
The cribs’ drop-side, which is attached with plastic hardware, can detach unexpectedly and create a space between the crib wall and the adjacent mattress. Infants and toddlers can become trapped in the space and suffocate or fall to the floor.
