The metal support brackets used to support the crib mattress and mattress board can crack and break. When one or more support brackets break, the mattress can collapse and create a dangerous gap between the mattress and crib rails, in which a child can become entrapped and suffocate.No children have died because of this defect, thank God, but one child sustained bruising to his head and another became trapped.
Parents are urged to stop using these cribs and to find a safe sleep method for their child. The remedy suggested is to contact Stork Craft to receive a free replacement kit with new mattress support brackets. The contact information for stork craft is:

We have one of these cribs for Natalie. I am getting incredibly frustrated, this is the second recalled crib that we have had. The first was Emily's - it worked fine for us, but after it was in the garage we found out that it had been recalled. Luckily this recall is fixable!
