The bassinet is supposed to be a safe space for your precious baby. So the last thing you need to hear is a major recall, right? Sorry, Moms, but it's happened. The Dorel Juvenile Group is recalling nearly 100,000 of its Eddie Bauer bassinets because they put infants at risk of suffocation!
The company has gotten 17-some reports of babies under 3 months old being rolled as the bassinet tips because of a spring problem. Some of the infants even suffered breathing issues from being stuck against the side of their little beds.
Think this could be your bassinet? Here's what you need to know to keep your baby safe:
1. The bassinets in the recall all have a dark brown wooden headboard and footboard and a cotton bassinet that comes in a variety of colors and patterns. The words "Eddie Bauer" are printed on a metal plate on the bassinet's footboard, and there is a dial at the base of the footboard that locks and unlocks the rocking motion of the bassinet.
2. The recalled bassinets have the following model numbers: 10632, 10639, 10832, 10835, 10839, and BT021. You'll find the number under the mattress, on the top surface of the mattress support board, or on the wash and care label.
3. The bassinets have been sold since 2007 at stores nationwide for about $150.
4. Parents should stop using the bassinet immediately and call Dorel for a repair kit at 877-416-0165, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the company website.
