Nearly 150,000 of the Stork Craft cribs that were recalled today carry the Fisher-Price logo. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Stork Craft Manufacturing, Inc., issued a voluntary recall of more than 2.1 million of Stork Craft’s drop-side cribs, making it the largest crib recall in U.S. history. Most of the recalled cribs were distributed in the U.S., approximately 1,213,000 units, with approximately 968,000 units distributed in Canada.
The CPSC states that the recalled cribs’ drop-side plastic hardware can break, deform, or parts can become missing. Additionally, the drop-side can be installed upside down, all of which can pose potential safety hazards for infants.
CPSC urges owners of the recalled crib to stop use immediately, do not attempt to fix the cribs, and wait for the free repair kit. Owners of the cribs should contact Stork Craft to request the repair kits. The recall does not involve Fisher-Price-branded cribs from Stork Craft that do not have a drop-side.
