More than 2.1 million dropside cribs by Stork Craft Manufacturing are being recalled, the biggest crib recall in U.S. history.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall involves 1.2 million cribs in the United States and almost 1 million in Canada, where Stork Craft is based. 

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

The CPSC is aware of four deaths of young children who suffocated in the cribs, which have a side that moves up and down to allow parents to lift children from the cribs more easily.

The Stork Craft cribs have had problems with their hardware, which can break, or with assembly mistakes by the crib owner.

Stork Craft released a toll-free number for consumers to call, or to order a free repair kit: (877) 274-0277.
