Consumers urged to act now to prevent risk of suffocation

Kolcraft Enterprises of Chicago, Ill., is reannouncing its earlier recall of about 51,000 inclined sleeper accessories included with Kolcraft Cuddle ‘n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleepers and Preferred Position 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleepers

Infant fatalities have been reported with other manufacturers’ inclined sleep products, after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side, or under other circumstances.

No incidents or injuries have been reported involving the Kolcraft product.

This recall involves the inclined sleeper accessory sold with the Kolcraft Cuddle ‘n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper (model number starting with KB063) and the Kolcraft Preferred Position 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper (model number starting with KB061).

Model numbers are located on the metal bar between the bassinets’ legs.

The inclined sleeper is the only portion of the product that is being recalled.

The inclined sleepers, manufactured in China, were sold at juvenile product stores and mass merchandisers nationwide from March 2011, through December 2017, for about $140.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled inclined sleeper accessory and contact Kolcraft for a $35 voucher to be used on www.Kolcraft.com or a $20 refund. The voucher can be used until February 20, 2022.

Kolcraft is contacting all registered owners and known purchasers directly via a postcard by mail.

Consumers may continue to use the bassinet without the inclined sleeper accessory.
