The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling over 75,000 Infant Bed-Side Sleepers because they could lead to entrapment, suffocation, and fall hazards. According to the CPSC, Arm’s Reach Concepts is recalling about 76,000 Infant Bed-Side Sleepers because the fabric liner could pose a suffocation risk.
When the fabric liner is not used or is not securely attached, infants can fall from the raised mattress into the loose fabric at the bottom of the bed-side sleeper, or can become entrapped between the edges of the mattress. The CPSC and Arm’s Reach has received ten reports of infants falling from the raised mattress, or becoming entrapped between the edge of the mattress and the side of the sleeper. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves a product called a “co-sleeper” by the manufacturer. One side of the bed-side sleepers is lower than the other to allow positioning near a bed and access to the infant for care and feeding. This recall includes all Arm’s Reach Original and Universal styles with manufacture dates between September 1997 and December 2001. The manufacture date and model number can be found on a sticker on one of the product’s legs. Model numbers included in the recall begin with: Original – 8108, 8133, 8111, 8112 & 8199 and Universal – 8311.
The bed-slide sleepers were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Babies R Us and other retail stores nationwide from September 1997 through December 2001 for about $160. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bed-side sleepers and visit www.armsreach.com/instructions to view and download assembly instructions and to make sure that the product is properly configured. Consumers should also contact the company by phone or via the company website to receive hard-copy instructions by mail and an assembly/warning label. Consumers who are missing the fabric liner or other components should immediately contact Arm’s Reach for an alternative remedy.
