"This week's post is partially a public service announcement. It seems that 2009 is garnering the year of recalls, ranging from toys, cars and now cribs. There have been some recalls made earlier this year and now we have one that concerns Stork Craft. Apparently, issues such as entrapment, falls, and suffocation are once again being pointed out and for the new parents and others who are still making use of cribs, be aware of the one you are using. Here is a list of cribs affected:
* Stork Craft drop-side cribs and Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher-Price logo
* Cribs with plastic trigger and one-hand-system drop-side hardware
* Stork Craft cribs with manufacturing and distribution dates between January 1993 and October 2009 (Wow, it only took them 16 years to figure this out??)
* Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo that have manufacturing dates between October 1997 and December 2004.
It's probably a good idea to look up your crib's manufacturer even if it is not on the list above, as I am sure this is not the first crib recall ever.
As always, I try to see the lighter side in my cartoons. So if you have a faulty crib, send away for a repair kit before your baby scores from '4th and inches'."
