The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Kolcraft are recalling the Tender Vibes and Light Vibes bassinets due to a fall hazard. Consumers have reported that the latches that attach the bassinet base onto the metal frame can appear to be locked in place but is still unlocked. This allows the bassinet to become detached from the metal frame, causing the bassinet to fall and the baby to be injured. There have been 7 reports of latches that detached from the bassinet base. One infant sustained a bruise after the bassinet detached from the frame and fell to the ground.
The recall includes Tender Vibes bassinets with model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER, KB039-CMR1 and the Light Vibes bassinets with model number KB043-BNT1. The model number of the bassinet can be located on one of the legs of the metal frame.
The recalled bassinets were sold at specialty stores nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012. Consumers should immediately stop using the bassinets and contact the firm by phone or online to receive a repair kit for the bassinet.
