RECALL: Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces a voluntary recall of the Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets.

Safety officials say there are about 97,000 Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets involved in the recall. 

Experts say the bottom locking mechanism can fail to lock properly if a spring is not installed. The bassinets are a risk to infants because they may tip to one side and cause infants to roll to the side of the bassinet.

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

The products are sold at Target, Toys R Us and Sears stores nationwide. They're also sold online at EBay and other websites.

Consumers should stop using the recalled bassinets and contact Dorel to obtain a free repair kit. The repair kit includes a spring and new instructions for assembly.
