Eddie Bauer, Disney infant sleepers recalled
Two more models of inclined infant sleepers have been recalled because of safety concerns.
Dorel Juvenile Group USA has recalled about 24,000 0f its Eddie Bauer Slumber and Soothe Bassinet and its Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet sleepers in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
While no injuries were reported with these specific models, the commission notes that 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 Dorel sleepers are rectangular with a soft bottom and cushioned fabric. They stand about 2 feet off the floor and are designed for sleeping or napping infants from birth to 6 months of age.
The Eddie Bauer sleeper bears model number BT055CSY while the Disney model number is BT071DHS.
They were sold nationwide from November 2014 through February 2017 at such retailers as Target, Kmart, Ross, Marshalls and TJ Maxx.
The commission advised consumers to stop using the sleepers and to contact Dorel for a refund in the form of a $60 voucher.
Consumers can contact Dorel by emailing [email protected] or calling 877-657-9546 toll-free or texting 812-373-6673 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays.
