Hazard: The latches that attach the bassinet base onto the metal frame can appear to be locked in place but still remain unlocked. This allows the bassinet to become detached from the metal frame, causing the bassinet to fall and the infant to be injured.

Sold at: Mass market and independent juvenile specialty stores nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012 for $50 to $100.
Remedy: Stop using the bassinets and contact the firm to receive a repair kit and instructions for securing the latches to the metal frame. In the meantime, parents should find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child.
