Millions of Cribs Recalled
A Stork Craft crib. The Canadian company has recalled millions of cribs because of a serious safety hazard.   (Stork Craft)

Millions of cribs with drop-down sides were recalled today out of fear they could injure or even kill children sleeping in them. The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall by Stork Craft of Canada, which distributed an estimated 1.2 million cribs in the US and nearly 1 million in Canada. Stork Craft will supply a free repair kit to consumers who request one, and the cribs shouldn't be used until the repair is complete.
