Burlington, IA—Fall hazards prompted the recall of about 500,000 bassinets by Burlington Basket Company and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The CPSC announced the product recall on February 16, 2011.

The product recall was initiated after discovering that if the cross-bracing rails are not fully locked into position, the bassinets can collapse causing the infant to fall to the floor or fall within the bassinet, which can cause injuries.

“This recall involves all Burlington Basket bassinets manufactured before June 2010. Affected models have folding legs attached to the basket with white plastic pins. Units with non-folding legs attached with metal pins are not included in this recall,” reported the CPSC press release.

Consumers are advised to stop using the bassinets and contact Burlington Basket Company for a free kit with instructions on how to properly assemble the support rails. A video showing proper assembly of the bassinets is available is available at http://burlingtonbasket.org/BASSINETRECALL.aspx.

For more information consumers can contact Burlington Basket Company at (800) 553-2300 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.burlingtonbasket.com.
