Visit your crib manufacturer's website occasionally and type in your crib name or number under their search option.
Monitor the recall website www.recalls.gov that constantly updates recall information on all consumer products including baby cribs.
Stay up to date with current news reports and printed media outlets. They are often the first to announce safety recalls and possible product issues.
