As if being a parent isn’t worry enough, every day you hear about another recall of children’s products. Whether it is lead paint in toys, tainted formula, or defective car seats, accessories and clothes, it seems like everything we buy, we have to second guess!  Now it has just been released that over 500,000 Stork Craft Cribs have been recalled.  The brackets that support the mattress can break and lead to suffocation!   So far, the CPSC has been informed of 10 injuries, including one child who suffered bruises to his head, and another child that became trapped between a gap in the mattress and drop side rail. The cribs that are being recalled were manufactured and distributed between May 2000 and November 2008, and were sold through January 2009 at major stores such as J.C. Penny, Kmart, Wal-Mart, and Babiesrus.com.

If you have a Stork Craft Crib, it is advised that you immediately find a different and safe sleeping area for your child.  You can also contact Stork Craft’s Toll-Free Number at (866) 361-3321 to order a free replacement kit that contains new mattress support brackets.
