A Fayette County family that brought a lawsuit against a Canadian company after their baby died in a crib, could be responsible for the recall of 2.1 million drop side cribs.

Stork Craft has announced the recall.

In 2007, Carter Michael Pack, six-months-old, was put down for a nap when he became trapped between the drop rail and the mattress.

After attempts to revive him, he was pronounced dead at Summersville Memorial Hospital.

The family filed suit against Stork, alleging the use of the wood screws to put the crib together, violated United States consumer protection laws.

Charleston attorney Harry Bell says he's happy about the recall, but it's much too late for the Pack family.

"Sadly, since the lawsuit was filed, Stork Craft's only response has been to stonewall and deny any responsibility for Carter's death, but this week's recall of more than two million cribs makes those denials ring hollow," said the law firm.
