Child Sleeper Bassinet Recall

The Federal Government issued a consumer safety warning to parents about Simplicity bassinets after two more infants were killed when they became trapped. Two young children died after getting trapped in previously recalled Simplicity close-sleeper/bedside sleeper bassinets, the Consumer Product Safety Commission released.

The company's 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible bassinets contain metal bars spaced farther apart than federal standards allow. If the Velcro-fastened fabric covering the metal bars of the bassinets is not properly adjusted, it can be dangerous.

In September 2008, an infant in Demorest, Ga., suffocated and died when she became trapped in a pocket of fabric, which was not properly secured to the bassinet. Here in Texas a six-month-old girl in Fort Worth, Texas, died when the fabric flap was undone and she got trapped between the exposed bars.

All of the bassinets manufactured before May 18, 2008 have been recalled. These include some sold under the Graco brand, some with a Winnie the Pooh motif, as well as other bassinets.

Recalled bassinets can be returned to the retail stores where they were purchased.

The law firm has extensive experience in handling product liability wrongful death litigation, including baby crib deaths.
