Fisher-Price cribs recalled

Mothers who want their babies to be safe would certainly stay away from Stork Craft cribs carrying the brand Fisher-Price.

Over 2 million drop-side cribs have been recalled in the United States and Canada after the deaths of four infants. The recall was initiated by U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Canadian government agency in cooperation with British Columbia-based Stork Craft.

Following the recall, parents were asked to stop using said cribs. They were also told not to make any attempt to fix them until they obtained a free Stork Craft repair kit.

A total of 110 accidents in US and Canada have been received where the crib’s drop side detached. In fact, fifteen children were trapped while 20 children fell from it.

Infants are susceptible to injuries due to their tender age. They need someone or something to protect them. Cribs may certainly give them care, protection and comfort. However, a defective crib would certainly cause them harm.

If your child has been injured due to this defective crib, a product liability case may be filed against the crib manufacturer. A personal injury lawyer may be hired to ask for compensation claims.
