Simplicity bassinet recall includes Graco and Winnie the Pooh

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

Back in August, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning about Simplicity 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible "close-sleeper/bedside sleeper" bassinets. The spaces between the metal bars do not meet CPSC safety standards and pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants. Yesterday, the Commission issued more information on the recalled bassinets,

Since the original warning, the CPSC has become aware that some of the bassinets in question include the Graco logo and a Winnie the Pooh motif. Consumers are urged to check their models to be sure they are not included in the list of recalled Simplicity bassinets.

Although SFCA Inc., the company which purchased all of Simplicity, Inc.'s assets at public auction in April, 2008, refuses to officially recall them, many retailers have voluntarily removed the bassinets from their shelves. Those retailers are providing refunds or store credits to customers who return their bassinet to the store where purchased. A list of those retailers can be found here.
