People with children may want to check the list of recalled items this week, which includes cribs, baby garments and common household objects. The following recalls have been announced:
PRODUCT: Stork Craft baby cribs
About 535,000 Stork Craft baby cribs — manufactured in Canada, China and Indonesia and imported by Stork Craft Manufacturing Inc. of British Columbia, Canada — because the metal mattress-support brackets can crack and break. This could cause the mattress to collapse and create a gap where a child could get trapped or suffocate.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is aware of 10 incidents of support brackets that broke. In one incident a child was trapped between the mattress and the side rail with no injuries. The cribs were sold at J.C. Penney, Kmart, Wal-Mart and other stores around the country. They were also sold online at amazon.com, babiesrus.com, costco.com and walmart.com. They were available between May 2000 through January 2009.
