5in1 Rocker Bassinets Recalled Over Infant Hazards
Our children’s safety is non-negotiable. Recent alerts from federal watchdogs have spotlighted a rising concern regarding the 5in1 Rocker Bassinets.
This week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released an urgent advisory asking parents and caregivers to immediately discontinue the use of the 5in1 Rocker Bassinets. Found on platforms like Walmart.com and various other online portals, these bassinets pose potential risks of suffocation, entrapment, and falls. Surprisingly, they do not adhere to the mandated federal safety benchmarks set for baby products, which includes crucial labelling and instructional guides.
Concerns Amplified by Non-compliance
The absence of requisite tracking labels on these bassinets — a mandated inclusion for kid’s goods — intensifies apprehensions about their safety integrity. Worryingly, Missouri’s Rev Grace Import, the firm behind importing these Chinese-made bassinets, hasn’t been responsive to the CPSC’s concerns, offering no solutions for purchasers.
For anyone who owns these bassinets, the CPSC’s recommendation is straightforward: disassemble and discard them. These products can be recognized by their green and gray hues, accompanied by unique marks on the packaging.
CPSC’s Dedicated Efforts Towards Child Safety
Given the CPSC’s recent initiatives in bolstering child safety, this alert holds significant weight. A little while ago, the 2022 Infant Sleep Product Regulation was broadened, now encompassing the Safe Sleep for Babies Act. This act notably prohibits the retail of crib bumpers – implicated in a concerning 107 infant deaths from 1990 to 2016 – and slanted sleeping aids, like the well-known Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play associated with more than 100 reported fatalities.
The CPSC maintains its stance: infants are safest when sleeping on a sturdy, level area, best within cribs, bassinets, or play yards. Keep their sleep zones minimalistic: a single fitted sheet is sufficient. Refrain from adding blankets, cushions, or plush crib borders. Ensure babies sleep on their backs, and if they fall asleep at an angle or upright, swiftly shift them to a safer, horizontal position.
