Yet another massive crib recall has parents worried from coast to coast. Last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 535,000 Stork Craft cribs. The cribs were sold nationwide at J.C. Penney, Kmart, and Walmart stores and at Amazon.com, Babiesrus.com, Costco.com, Sears.com and Walmart.com from May 2000 through January 2009. The problem? Metal support brackets on the crib. They can crack and break, in turn causing the mattress to collapse and create a gap that can trap babies and cause them to suffocate. So far 10 incidents and one injury have been reported. Parents are being told to stop using the cribs immediately and contact Stork Craft (866-361-3321; www.storkcraft.com) for free replacement mattress support brackets.
