Dorel Juvenile Group Recalls Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets Due to Infant Suffocation Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets

Units: About 97,000

Manufacturer: Dorel Juvenile Group, of Columbus, Ind.

Hazard: The bottom locking mechanism can fail to lock properly if a spring is not installed, allowing the bassinet to tip to one side and cause infants to roll to the side of the bassinet. This poses a suffocation hazard to infants.

Incidents/Injuries: Dorel has received 17 reports of incidents with the recalled bassinets involving infants primarily younger than three months old. In two of the incidents, infants were reported to have had breathing difficulties after they rolled into the side of their bassinets.

Description: This recall involves Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets. The bassinets have a dark brown wooden headboard and footboard and a cotton bassinet that comes in a variety of colors and patterns. "Eddie Bauer" is printed on a metal plate on the bassinet's footboard. These bassinets have a dial at the base of the footboard that locks and unlocks the rocking motion of the bassinet. Recalled bassinets have the following model numbers: 10632, 10639, 10832, 10835, 10839 and BT021. The model number is located under the mattress, on the top surface of the mattress support board or on the wash and care label.

Sold at: Target, Toys R Us and Sears stores nationwide and online at Ebay and other websites from December 2007 through January 2011 for about $150.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bassinets and contact Dorel to obtain a free repair kit, which includes a spring and new instructions for assembly.

Consumer Contact: Dorel; toll-free at (877) 416-0165, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or www.djgusa.com and click on Safety Notices for more information.
