Simplicity Bassinets Recalled After Infant Deaths

Another recall alert issued for Simplicity bassinets

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging all parents and caregivers to stop using Simplicity Inc.'s convertible "close-sleeper/bedside sleeper" bassinets immediately. The CPSC has been informed of two infant deaths that occurred after its August 2008 recall announcement, which was also prompted by two infants who died in their bassinets.

In September 2008, a two-month-old baby suffocated in the fabric siding of the Simplicity bassinet. In January 2009, a six-month-old baby appears to have become fatally entrapped in the bassinet's bar opening created when the Velcro fasteners weren't secured. The CPSC received to other reports involving babies whose heads became entrapped but were freed by caregivers without injury.

The affected products are Simplicity 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible bassinets, including those with the Graco logo and "Winnie the Pooh" motif. They were manufactured before May 18, 2008, and the model numbers can be found on the CPSC's website. A number of retailers have agreed to provide a refund or store credit to consumers who return the bassinet to the store from which it was purchased.
