The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, today announced a recall on Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets. About 97,000 units have been recalled.

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. Dorel has received 17 reports of incidents with the recalled bassinets involving infants primarily younger than three months old.

This recall involves Eddie Bauer Wood Bassinets. The bassinets have a dark brown wooden headboard and footboard and a cotton bassinet that comes in a variety of colors and pattern. “Eddie Bauer” is printed on a metal place 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
  • 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.

This product has been sold at Target, Toys R Us, Sears stores nationwide, online at Ebay, and other websites from December 2007 through January 2011.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bassinets and contact Dorel to obtain a free repair kit. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product. For more information, visit www.djgusa.com and click on “Safety Notices.”
