According to the press release at CPSC official website, the affected products were manufactured by Burlington Basket Company in the US before June 2010, and were sold from January 2003 to August 2010.

Apparently, the said bassinets can collapse anytime once the cross-bracing rails are not fully locked into position, and may cause babies to fall to the ground.

As noted by Burlington Basket, which is based in Burlington, Iowa, the recall was prompted by 10 incident reports, where two babies had minor injuries, including bruises in the shoulder and head.

These bassinets were sold at Walmart and other mass merchandisers, department stores and juvenile product stores across the US, and on several online retailers including Amazon.com, for about $50 each.

Nevertheless, the company reminded the public that models with non-folding legs attached with metal pins are not affected by this recall, which means only included are those that units that has folding legs and white pins attached to the basket.

In addition, the company said that this recall does not involve returning the affected products. Instead, customers are being advised to immediately stop using the affected bassinets and ensure that the cross-bracing support rails are in the locked position.

With this, the instruction video below released by the company is being expected to assist their customers.
For more information, Burlington Basket Company is inviting the public to contact them at (800) 553-2300 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit their official website at BurlingtonBasket.org.
