- Phoenix Drop-Side Crib Recall Lawyers
Drop-side cribs have become a popular item for purchase by consumers of North America, as they offer convenience and the potential for the minimization of danger to both the parent and the child by removing the awkward posturing that was required with traditional cribs in order to place the child in or remove the infant from the crib. Unfortunately, recent news has come to light regarding a massive drop-side crib recall by Stork Craft Manufacturing of Canada, and it’s believed to be the largest crib recall ever in the United States. Overall, more than 2 million units have been recalled in the United States and Canada combined, and below is a brief overview of the issue.
Drop-Side Crib Recall – The Problems
Drop-side crib recall lawyers have been receiving inquiries in recent days because it was discovered that there was a manufacturing defect present in models sold throughout the United States and Canada. The two specific problems that resulted from this manufacturing defect are as follows:
Drop-Side Crib Recall – Collapsing Side Becoming Detached
One of the problems identified with these cribs was the tendency for the side that drops to completely detach from the crib’s frame, either because of pressure exerted from the inside by the infant as he or she rolled into the side or because of the application of pressure from the parent who leaned into the side from the outside. When this side detaches, it creates an instantly dangerous situation whereby either the child can fall out of the crib or the parent can fall into the crib with the child in hand.
Drop-Side Crib Recall – Dangerous Space Created by Internal Pressure
The more dangerous result created by the manufacturing defect occurred when the sleeping infant would roll into the collapsing side of the crib and exert pressure on it that led to the formation of a space between the side of the mattress and the crib’s dropping side. This space was large enough for the infant to fall into and to become trapped, leading to an immediate danger of suffocation.
Overall, the Consumer Product Safety Commission received reports of four infant deaths due to suffocation from the second problem discussed above and hundreds of other injuries from the combination of both of the previously-mentioned problems. As a result, Stork Craft Manufacturing has initiated a recall and offered consumers an opportunity to obtain a repair kit that will permanently fix the dropping side to the frame. In the meantime, the CPSC has advised parents to stop using this product.
Drop-Side Crib Recall – The Details
The CPSC released the following statement regarding the drop-side crib models that are affected by this recall:
This recall includes Stork Craft cribs with manufacturing and distribution dates between January 1993 and October 2009. This recall also includes Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo that have manufacturing dates between October 1997 and December 2004. The Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo were first sold in the U.S. in July 1998 and in Canada in September 1998. The cribs were sold in various styles and finishes. The manufacture date, model number, crib name, country of origin, and the firms name, address, and contact information are located on the assembly instruction sheet attached to the mattress support board. The firms insignia storkcraft baby or storkling is inscribed on the drop-side teething rail of some cribs. In Stork Craft cribs that contain the Fisher-Price logo, this logo can be found on the cribs teething rail, in the manufacturers instructions, on the assembly instruction sheet attached to the mattress support board, and on the end panels of the Twinkle-Twinkle and Crystal crib models.
The models at issue have been sold since 1993 at retail outlets that include BJs Wholesale Club, J.C. Penney, Kmart, Meijer, Sears, USA Baby, and Wal-Mart stores and online at Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com, Costco.com, Target.com, and Walmart.com.”
