The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have recalled Kolcraft Tender Vibes & Light Vibes bassinets. The latches that attach the bassinet base onto the metal frame can appear to be locked in place but actually remain unlocked. This allows the bassinet to become detached from the metal frame, causing it fall and the infant to be injured.CPSC and Kolcraft have received seven reports of latches that detached from the bassinet frame.This recall includes Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinets with model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER, KB039-CMR1 and Light Vibes bassinet with model number KB043-BNT1. A label with the model/item number of the bassinet is located on one of the legs of the metal frame.
About 46,000 of the bassinets were sold at baby stores nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012 for between $50 and $100.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bassinets and contact Kolcraft toll-on (888) 624-1908 or visit www.kolcraft.com to receive a repair kit and instructions for securing the latches.
