2.1 Million Cribs Recalled, Including 150,000 From Fisher Price

Following four deaths, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced one of the largest recalls of cribs in the agency’s history: 2.1 million cribs manufactured by Stork Craft, including roughly 150,000 sold under the Fisher Price brand. As in other recent recalls, this one is based on problems with drop-side cribs entrapping babies and seriously injuring or killing them.

The latest recall brings the grand total of crib, bassinet and play yard recalls over the past three years to 5 million, including over 500,000 Stock Craft cribs recalled earlier this year, and 600,000 Delta drop-side cribs recalled last month.Consumer advocates have urged stricter standards — or even a ban — on such cribs.

Parents are urged to stop using recalled cribs and contact Stork Kraft at (877) 274-0277 or on the company’s web site. More information is available through the CPSC.
