Stork Craft Crib Recall

Tuesday, January 13, 2009
...
Another major recall by a crib manufacturer. A recall has been issued for Stork Craft cribs manufactured between May 2000 and November 2008.

See a CBC report on it here or visit the Health Canada Product Recall site here.

I actually own this crib and of course I'm very concerned. Upon closer review of the hazard (quoted from the Health Canada site):
  • The metal support brackets used to support the mattress frame can crack and break after stress is put upon them during incorrect installation. If one or more support brackets break, the mattress could potentially collapse and create a dangerous gap between the mattress and crib rails in which a child can become entrapped and suffocate.
I had my husband check the crib and everything looks bolted down tight. Whew!

While we're on this topic, check out all the children's recalls in Canada here... there are quite a few from December 2008 alone.

Good deal?
