We had a similar situation with our crib being recalled. I contacted the company and they emailed me a voucher good for the purchase of a new crib, I was hoping for store credit but it was only good towards a new crib, the nice thing was that it was the full retail value of our old crib, your manufacturer may have a different way of dealing with it. We did opt to get a new crib that was a convertible, our old one wasn't, that way if babe isn't a crib sleeper he will eventually use it as a toddler or full size bed. I though since he is my third it would be nice to have a safe place to put him while changing laundry, showering etc where he won't get mauled by the older two.
As far as I understand the recalls are being handled by the individual manufacturers and not by the place of purchase. But it is really easy to find out the info online and the process was pretty painless. I had to send in some of the cribs hardware using a provided fedex label two days later the voucher was in my inbox, printed it out brought it to babies r us and voila free crib.
I'm just wondering how many co-sleeping families use a crib. We'll have a playpen thing for containment if needed. That may be the answer if we find we need something.
