Another important child product recall to warn you about tonight. About 97,000 rocking wood bassinets by Eddie Bauer have been recalled. The locking mechanism on the bassinet can fail to lock properly causing it to tip to one side, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Division. This poses a suffocation hazard to infants in the bassinet. The manufacturer has received 17 reports of incidents. In two of them, the infants were reported to have difficulty breathing once they rolled to the side of the bassinet.
The Eddie Bauer bassinet recall affects bassinets sold at Target, Toys R Us, Sears and online at Ebay for about $150. Consumers are urged to stop using the bassinets immediately and to contact the manufacturer for a free repair kit.
