2.1 million cribs recalled in Canada and U.S.

Over two million drop-side baby cribs made by Stork Craft have been recalled across Canada and the U.S.

The Canadian-based company is urging parents to stop using the cribs because of problems with the drop-side detachment.

When the side rail separates, the baby can get trapped in the gap and can suffocate or get strangled by the rails.

A spokesperson with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said there have been four deaths and more than 100 injuries.

The cribs were made between 1993 and October 2009.

Nearly 150,000 of the cribs on recall carry the Fisher-Price logo.

A free repair kit is available from Stork Craft that will convert the drop-side to a fixed side. Consumers can call the toll-free number at: (877) 274-0277

There are reports that drop-side cribs could soon be removed from the marketplace altogether.
