More Dead Infants Prompt Re-Recall Of Simplicity Bassinet

The CPSC has issued a second recall of convertible “close-sleeper/bedside sleeper” bassinets made by Simplicity after learning of two additional infant deaths since the bassinets were recalled last August. Here is a Consumer Reports video explaining the dangers of the recalled bassinets.

If you bought a recalled bassinet, you should return it to the retail store where it was purchased. Most stores have agreed to issue their own recalls and provide a refund to consumers.

The full announcement by the CPSC is available here later. In the meantime, you can look at the earlier Simplicity bassinet recalls to see which products were recalled.
