Check Your Baby’s Nursery. Kolcraft Bassinets Recalled Due To Fall Dangers After Latches Can Detach.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a safety recall for certain Kolcraft Tender Vibes and Light Vibes bassinets that have locking latches which may fail and cause the bassinets to fall and possibly injuring your infant or cause a head injury. The CPSC and Kolcraft have received seven reports of latches detaching from the bassinet frame.
This current recall involves about 46,000 Kolcraft bassinets that were sold in stores or online from July 2008 through May 2012. The recalled Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinets include model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER and KB039-CMR1 and the Kolcraft Light Vibes bassinet recall is limited to model number KB043-BNT1. (Model numbers are printed on a label located on the side of one of the metal frame legs.)
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bassinets and contact Kolcraft at (215) 866-2424 or www.kolcraft.com to receive a repair kit and instructions for securing the latches to the metal frame.
