We expect the products we buy and consume to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and sometimes the products we buy and consume pose potential risks to our health and/or safety. When a potential hazard with a product is discovered, it is common for the company that produces the product to issue a recall to help inform consumers of the potential risks associated with the product. Recently, the recall of infant sleepers, which began with the recall of Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play Sleepers, has been expanded to sleepers sold under two other brand names.
Dorel Juvenile Group USA, the maker of the sleepers, has issued a recall for two of the sleepers, sold under other brand names. The recall comes after injuries and deaths were reported with the use of similar products, such as the Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play Sleepers. Infants have been able to roll from their back to their stomach or side while in the sleepers, which has resulted in death and serious injuries to the infants in some cases. The sleepers included in the recall are:
- Eddie Bauer Slumber and Soothe Bassinet
- Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet
Those who own the product are able to contact the company that makes them to receive a refund. The refund will come in the form of a $60 voucher. The sleepers included in the recall were sold across the country at popular stores such as Target, Kmart, Ross, Marshalls and T.J. Maxx since 2014. No injuries have been reported in connection with the newly recalled sleepers and the company is recalling them based on the similar recalled products.
