Baby Bed Recall

More than 2.1 million baby cots going back to 1993 are being recalled in the US, following reports of four baby deaths from suffocation.

The recall involves 1.2 million cots in the country and nearly a million in Canada, where by the manufacturer, Stork Craft Manufacturing, is based.

Nearly 150,000 of the cots carry the Fisher-Price logo.

The CPSC said it was aware of four infants who suffocated in the drop-side cots, which have a side that moves up and down to allow parents to lift children from the cots more easily. The agency also said there had been 110 incidents of drop-sides detaching from the cots.

The commission is urging parents to stop using the cots until receiving a free repair kit from Stork Craft. The kit will convert the drop-side into a fixed side.
