The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of more than 2.1 million Stork Craft drop-side cribs, linked to reports of four infant suffocations, due to the tendency of the cribs’ plastic hardware to break or deform. Parts also can go missing and the drop-side can be installed incorrectly, resulting in broken parts.
When this happens, space is created between the mattress and the drop-side of the crib, potentially causing infants and toddlers to become trapped and suffocate. Additionally, the drop-side may become detached and result in falls.
