Wed, 3/23/2011 8:51 AM
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Delta Enterprise Corp., of New York, N.Y. are re-announcing the 2008 recall (http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml09/09017.html ) of more than 985,000 drop-side cribs with "Crib Trigger Lock and Safety Peg" hardware. In January 2011, CPSC and Delta learned of a 2009 death in which 7-month-old girl from Colorado Springs, Colo. became entrapped and suffocated between the detached drop-side and mattress of her recalled crib. The crib was purchased secondhand and re-assembled without safety pegs in the bottom tracks.
Largest Crib Recall in U.S. History

On November 23, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall of more that 2.1 million Stork Craft drop-side cribs, including the Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher-Price logo. CPSC urges parents and caregivers to immediately stop using the recalled cribs and find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby or toddler. The drop-sides of the recalled cribs can detach in one or more places due to problems with the cribs' plastic hardware or improper installation of the drop-sides. This creates a space between the drop-side and the crib mattress where infants and toddlers can become entrapped, leading to suffocation. Falls can also occur if the drop-side detached completely.
This is SERIOUS: 110 incidents of drop-side detachment are known, including 15 entrapments, 20 falls. Four of the entrapments resulted in death- All were between the ages of 6 and 9 months.
The cribs were sold in the USA and Canada between February 1993 and October 2009 for $100- $400. Major retailers included: BJ's Wholesale Club, J.C. Penney, Kmart, Meijer, Sears, USA Baby, Wal-Mart, Amazon.com,Babiesrus.com, Costco.com, Target.com, and Walmart.com.
For more details, including how to receive a free repair kit that converts the drop-side to a fixed side, please visit www.cpsc.gov Do NOT attempt to fix the cribs without a kit!
