500,000 bassinets recalled; could collapse
WASHINGTON (KABC) -- About 500,000 baby bassinets made by Burlington Basket Co. were recalled Wednesday amid concerns that they could collapse if not assembled properly.
All the bassinets involved in the recall were made by the company before June of last year.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the bassinets can collapse if the support rails that hold the basket are not fully locked into place.
The company is not offering to take back the bassinets, but is instead giving consumers free repair kits to show exactly how to install the support rails. Consumers should check to make sure their bassinet has the support rails properly locked in place.
There have been 10 reports of incidents in which the bassinets collapsed when the folding legs were not locked properly. Two infants received minor injuries, including a bruise to the head.
The bassinets were sold at Wal-Mart and other mass merchandisers, department stores and juvenile product stores nationwide.
Consumers can contact the company at 800-553-2300 for more information.
