An accessory incline sleeper included with baby beds is being recalled by Kolcraft due to the risk of suffocation
Kolcraft is recalling about 51,000 inclined sleeper accessories included with its cuddle ‘n care 2-in-1 bassinet and preferred position 2-in-1 bassinet.
Infant fatalities have been reported with other manufacturers’ inclined sleep products, after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side, or under other circumstances.
No incidents or injuries have been reported with the two recalled products.
This recall involves the inclined sleeper accessory sold with the kolcraft cuddle ‘n care 2-in-1 bassinet and incline sleeper, model number starting with KB063, and the Kolcraft preferred position 2-in-1 bassinet and incline sleeper, model number starting with KB061.
Model numbers are located on the metal bar between the bassinets’ legs. The inclined sleeper is the only portion of the product that’s being recalled.
The recalled products were sold at juvenile product stores and mass merchandisers nationwide from March 2011 through December 2017 for about $140.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled inclined sleeper accessory and contact Kolcraft for a $35 voucher to be used on www.Kolcraft.com or a $20 refund. The voucher can be used until February 20, 2022.
Kolcraft is contacting all registered owners and known purchasers directly by a postcard sent in the mail. Consumers can continue to use the bassinet without the inclined sleeper accessory.
