Bassinet Recall

Approximately 500,000 baby bassinets are being recalled by the Burlington Basket Company and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

This comes after ten reports of these baby bassinet  models collapsing, which resulted in minor injuries with two infants.  Bassinets in this recall can collapse if  the cross-bracing rails are not fully locked into place.

The recalled bassinets were made before June 2010 and were sold nationwide from January 2003 through August 2010 for about $50.  The bassinets have folding legs attached to the basket with white plastic pins.

If your baby bassinet is part of this  recall, you should:

-Stop using it

-Check the cross-bracing support rails to make sure they are in the locked position (with end tabs fully inserted into the holes on the leg assembly and twisted one quarter turn)

-Order a free kit from Burlington Basket Company with instructions showing proper assembly and new warning stickers to put on the recalled bassinet.

-Confirm that the rails are in the locked position before you start using the bassinet again.

Fortunately, no children have been seriously hurt by the recalled baby bassinets and parents don’t have to return the bassinets to the store or get a new one.  They can continue to use their recalled bassinets as long as they make sure they have it assembled correctly, which is made easier with the new instructions.
