Disney, Eddie Bauer Bassinets Recalled As Deaths Reported From Inclined Sleepers

August 01, 2019 - 7:49 am

DETROIT (WWJ) - Thousands of baby sleepers are being recalled over fears that children could be harmed while using them.

The recall includes 24,000 Disney and Eddie Bauer products. The sleepers were sold at a number of places -- including Target, Kmart, Marshalls and TJ Maxx -- from November 2014 through February 2017.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says infant fatalities have been reported while using other inclined sleep products, after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.

The recall involves the Eddie Bauer Slumber and Soothe Bassinet with model number BT055CSY and the Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet with model number BT071DHS. Model numbers are located on a label on the underneath side of the fabric of the inclined sleeper pad.

The inclined sleepers are rectangular shaped with a soft bottom, cushioned fabric, stand approximately two feet off the floor and are designed for sleeping or napping infants from birth to six months of age. The Eddie Bauer Slumber and Sooth Bassinet is beige. The Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet is purple.

Consumers should immediately stop using the inclined sleepers and contact Dorel Juvenile Products for a refund in the form of a $60 voucher.
