DETROIT (WWJ) – If you have an infant, you’ll want to take note of this recall.
About 13,000 2-in-1 Bassinet to Cradles that were made in China and imported by New Jersey-based Dream on Me Inc., are being recalled. The company says the wire supports can disconnect and cause the fabric sides to lower, leaving infants susceptible to falling out or suffocation.READ MORE: CDC: New Listeria Outbreak Tied To 23 Illnesses, 1 Death
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the company issued the recall after receiving a report of one such incident, although no injuries were reported.
The cradles were sold nationwide at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Wayfair.com, ToysRUs.com and Kohls.com from May 2012 to October 2014 for about $60. They were sold in pink, blue, green and white designs.READ MORE: Red Wings Hire Lightning Assistant Derek Lalonde As Coach
The bassinet has metal frame supports and fabric sides with a removable half-canopy on the top. It’s designed with fabric handles and the option to remove the bassinet from the frame to use the bassinet portion as a “by the bed” sleeper product. The recalled model numbers are 439-A, 439-B, 439-G, 439-P and 439-W and can be found on a tag which is located under the mattress pad of the bassinet.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact Dream On Me to obtain a free repair. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a crib that meets current safety standards or play yard depending on the child’s age.
