Kolcraft recalls inclined sleeper accessories

The Journal Gazette

Kolcraft Enterprises Inc. of Chicago has recalled about 51,000 inclined sleeper accessories included with bassinets to prevent the risk of suffocation.

No injuries have been reported. 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.

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 accessories were sold at juvenile product stores and mass merchandisers nationwide from March 2011 through December 2017 for about $140.

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 Feb. 20, 2022.

Kolcraft is contacting all registered owners and known purchasers directly via a postcard by mail. Consumers can continue to use the bassinet without the inclined sleeper accessory.
