Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets

Recall date: October 23, 2012

Name of product:
Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets

The Hazard:
 The bottom locking mechanism can fail to lock properly if a spring is not installed, allowing the bassinet to tip to one side and cause infants to roll to the side of the bassinet. This poses a suffocation hazard to infants. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the manufacturer Dorel has received 17 reports of incidents with the recalled bassinets involving infants primarily younger than three months old. In two of the incidents, infants were reported to have had breathing difficulties after they rolled into the side of their bassinets.

Description:
 The recall involves about 97,000 bassinets sold in the U.S. at Target, Toys R Us and Sears stores nationwide and online at Ebay and other websites from December 2007 through January 2011 for about $150. The bassinets have a dark brown wooden headboard and footboard and a cotton bassinet that comes in a variety of colors and patterns. "Eddie Bauer" is printed on a metal plate on the bassinet's footboard. These bassinets have a dial at the base of the footboard that locks and unlocks the rocking motion of the bassinet. Recalled bassinets have the following model numbers: 10632, 10639, 10832, 10835, 10839 and BT021. The model number is located under the mattress, on the top surface of the mattress support board or on the wash and care label.

What to do:
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bassinets and contact Dorel to obtain a free repair kit, which includes a spring and new instructions for assembly. Call Dorel at (877) 416-0165, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit Dorel and click on Safety Notices for more information.
