Infant Sleepers Recalled

Local News Stories

There’s an important consumer alert for parents. Two infant sleepers are being recalled.

Dorel Juvenile Group USA is recalling 24,000 infant sleepers due to safety concerns associated with inclined sleep products.

The recall involves the Eddie Bauer Slumber and Soothe Bassinet and the Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet.

The sleepers were sold at Target, Kmart, Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and other stores between November 2014 and February 2017.

Parents are urged to stop using these products and should contact the manufacturer for a refund.

So far, no incidents or injuries have been reported in this recall. However, infant fatalities have been linked to other inclined sleeper brands.

In those cases, the infants rolled from their backs to their stomach or side while unrestrained or under other circumstances.
