Kolcraft bassinets involved in the recall - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall four model numbers of Kolcraft baby bassinets because the locking mechanism may not be fully locked-in and could cause the bed to fall. The company is offering consumers who have the recalled bassinet a free repair kit to fix the problem.

The recall was issued after the CPSC and Kolcraft received seven reports of the bassinet detaching from the metal frame. One infant sustained a bruised cheek from the falling bassinet while being inside of it.

Around 46,000 bassinets are involved in the recall. They and were at stores and being sold between July 2008 and May 2012. The bassinets were sold nationwide at mass-market retailers, children specialty stores, and online with a price between $50 and $100.

The products are called Kolcraft Tender Vibes & Light Vibes bassinets. The Tender Vibes bassinets had three model numbers - KB021-ARC, KB022-VER, and KB039-CMR1, which have different color themes. The Light Vibes bassinet model number is KB043-BNT1. The model/item number is displayed on the bassinet legs. A detachable music box comes with the bassinet and has the words “Kolcraft Tender Vibes” or “Kolcraft Light Vibes”, depending on the model.

Consumers who have the recalled bassinets should stop using them and find another safe place for the infant to sleep, such as a crib or a playpen, until they can install the free repair kit.

To expedite getting the repair kit, consumers should contact Kolcraft toll-free at (888) 624-1908 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or by visiting the company’s website at www.kolcraft.com to request the free repair kit and installation instructions.
