Consumer Product Safety Commission Re Announces Urgent Bassinet Recall

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued an urgent re-announcement of a bassinet recall that they first conducted last August. The bassinets were manufactured defectively by Simplicity Bassinets and have led to the death of at least four infants over the last two years. The first death occurred in September 2007 when a four-month old baby became trapped in the bassinet. It seems that there is a defect in the bassinets in which children can become trapped between the mattress and the lower bar of the bassinet. The child apparently died of suffocation. In August 2008, another infant, this time aged at five-months old, became trapped between metal bars of the bassinet and also died. The recall was first issued soon after the death of the five-month old child, but the CPSC has since learned of two more deaths from the use of these bassinets.

The first of the two new deaths occurred in September 2008, just before the first recall took place. A two-month old infant died of suffocation after she rolled over into the fabric siding of the bassinet. She became trapped with her fact stuck in a pocket of the fabric. The second new death occurred in January of this year when a six-month old baby became trapped between the bars of the bassinet. There have been a number of other incidents in which death almost occurred to infants in these bassinets because of similar circumstances, but they were thankfully saved by their caregivers before tragedy struck.

Parents are being urged by Simplicity Bassinets and the Consumer Product Safety Commission to stop using the defective bassinets and return them to the company for a refund or replacement. The CPSC has felt it necessary to announce this recall again because parents continue to be either unaware of the danger or unconcerned with the potentially injurious consequences. With a number of recalls that have been announced this year regarding children’s products, it is important for parents and all consumers to stay informed on what products they purchase that could potentially cause injury or harm.

One of the children’s products recently recalled this year was the Little Tikes Clubhouse Swing Sets. These swing sets were equipped with a defective swing that could become detached from the rest of the set while being used by small children. The company announced a voluntary recall of the swing sets when they realized that small children and infants could sustain injuries from falling accidents while using their swing sets. Another recall was announced for children’s swimming floats. The floats were defective and prone to deflation and/or breakage, which could have led to drowning deaths or substantial injury. For those who have small children, it’s important to keep an eye on everything the CPSC announces regarding children’s products. For those who have a child that has been injured or killed by defective products, it would be wise to get counsel from a personal injury attorney regarding your rights as a parent and the rights of your child.
