Consumer Recall: Burlington Basket Bassinets & TrueLiving Heater Fans

Bassinets Recalled by Burlington Basket Company Due to Fall Hazard

This recall involves all Burlington Basket bassinets manufactured before June 2010. Approximately 500,000 bassinets are involved with this recall. Affected models have folding legs attached to the basket with white plastic pins. 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 and suffer injuries.

The bassinets were sold at Walmart and other mass merchandisers, department stores and juvenile product stores nationwide and online by various Web retailers, including Amazon.com, from January 2003 through August 2010 for about $50.

Consumers should immediately stop using the bassinets and check the cross-bracing support rails to make sure they are in the locked position. To properly lock the support rails into place, the end tabs must be fully inserted into the holes on the leg assembly and twisted one quarter turn into the locked position, as shown in the photos below. Consumers should contact Burlington Basket Company for a free kit with detailed instructions on proper assembly of the cross-bracing support rails.
