Eddie Bauer Rocking Bassinet Recall announced for Suffocation Concerns

Dorel Juvenile Group’s Eddie Bauer branded Rocking Wood Bassinet recall - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall of Dorel Juvenile Group’s Eddie Bauer branded Rocking Wood Bassinets. The concern is that the locking mechanism at the bottom of the bassinet may not properly hold when the spring is not installed. The infant could tip to one side, which puts the child at risk of suffocating.

Around 97,000 of the Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets are being recalled so that consumers can get a free repair kit to remedy the problem. The bassinets were sold at Target, Toys R Us, and Sears store nationwide. They were also sold online through these stores and on Ebay. The bassinet crib sold for around $150 between December 2007 and January 2011.

Dorel Juvenile Group received 17 reports regarding this bassinet. The majority of the reports involved infants under three months old. Two cases involved infants who had breathing problems when they rolled into the side of the bassinet.

The recalled bassinets came with a dark brown wood finish on the headboard and footboard. The fabric came in a variety of patterns and colors. The words “Eddie Bauer” were printed on a metal plate that is affixed to the footboard of the bassinet. The model numbers involved are 10632, 10639, 10832, 10835, 10839, and BT021. The model number can be found under the mattress on the wash-and-care label.

Consumers who have the recalled bassinets should not use them until they can install the free repair kit. To get the free repair kit, consumers can contact Dorel toll-free at (877) 416-0165 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday. Consumers can also visit the company’s website at www.djgusa.com for more information.
