Infant Entrapment and Suffocation Prompts Stork Craft to Recall More Than 2.1 Million Drop-Side Cribs


IN THE NEWS
Posted on 24 Nov 2009 by BNG Staff

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Stork Craft Manufacturing Inc., of British Columbia, Canada, today announced the voluntary recall of more than 2.1 million Stork Craft drop-side cribs, including about 147,000 Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher-Price logo. The recall involves approximately 1,213,000 units distributed in the United States and 968,000 units distributed in Canada.

CPSC urges parents and caregivers to immediately stop using the recalled cribs, wait for the free repair kit, and do not attempt to fix the cribs without the kit. They should find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby. Consumers should contact Stork Craft to receive a free repair kit that converts the drop-side on these cribs to a fixed side.

The cribs’ drop-side plastic hardware can break, deform, or parts can become missing. In addition, the drop-side can be installed upside-down, which can result in broken or disengaged plastic parts. All of these problems can cause the drop-side to detach in one or more corners. When the drop-side detaches, it creates space between the drop-side and the crib mattress. The bodies of infants and toddlers can become entrapped in the space which can lead to suffocation. Complete detachment of drop-sides can lead to falls from the crib.

Speaking of pets, a national survey reveals most pet owners believe they can understand the "woofs" and "meows" of their pets. At least 62% of dog and cat lovers insist their fury friends can understand what they're saying, according to an Associated Press poll. While it may be as elementary as a dog barking "I need to take a walk" or a cat purring "give me more chow," the bulk of pet owners say the dialogue isn't just a guessing game.

High Heels for Babies?


IN THE NEWS
Posted on 10 Sep 2008 by BNG Staff

High Heels for babies? That's right. A company from Los Angeles (Heelarious.com) sells a soft version of high heels for babies from 0 to 6 months old.  These shoes are not made for walking, but will be a topic for conversations and are so cute. You can purchase the shoes either online or at one of retailers across the country. I personally think this is a wonderful idea.
