Biggest Crib Recall In U.S. History

Government safety regulators say more than 2.1 million dropside cribs by Stork Craft Manufacturing are being recalled, the biggest crib recall in U.S history.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall involves 1.2 million cribs in the United States and almost 1 million in Canada, where Stork Craft is based.

Nearly 150,000 of the cribs on recall carry the Fisher-Price logo.

The agency is aware of four deaths of young children who suffocated in the cribs, which have a side that moves up and down to allow parents to lift children from the cribs more easily.

The Stork Craft cribs have had problems with their hardware, which can break, or with assembly mistakes by the crib owner.

    I mean really? I sold a lot of these cribs and honestly, I talked people into better cribs more often than not! Most of these cribs felt cheap and didn't work properly. If you want an inexpensive product, guess what you lose? the quality. Not that some expensive brands and models aren't crap too, but common sense more often than not will help you make the right choice.

    They were made in Canada, Indonesia, and China.

    It's been how many years since cribs were invented and WE (the world) still cannot manufacture them correctly?!?!?
