Stork Craft Manufacturing of British Columbia, Canada is recalling about 535,000 cribs because it says the metal support brackets used to support the crib mattress and mattress board can crack and break.
When brackets break, the mattress can collapse and create a dangerous gap between the mattress and crib rails.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports ten incidents in which one or more mattress support brackets broke.
Parents and caregivers are being told to immediately stop using the recalled cribs and find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby.
All cribs with manufacturing and distribution dates between May 2000 and November 2008 are included in this recall. Consumers should contact Stork Craft to receive a free replacement kit, with new mattress support brackets. The number is toll-free at (866) 361-3321 or log on to www.storkcraft.com.
