Be Wary of the Winnie the Pooh Brands

In the latter part of last month, I had posted news regarding the recall of some cribs due to a potential suffocation hazard. While many have had their heads up for this line, apparently it can go as far as extending towards another line called Graco Bassinets and Winnie the Pooh brands.

Apparently, it seems that crib manufacturers have various lines and while we can easily identify one product line, it remains that related ones may more or less become dangerous as well. With that, Graco Bassinets are likewise forewarned as potential hazards and are likewise being recalled.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), some of the Simplicity Bassinets which were recalled last month could have been sold as Graco bassinets or with a “Winnie the Pooh” motif.

At least two infant deaths have been linked to a design defect in the bassinets where metal bars are further apart than permitted by the Crib Federal Safety standard. This could allow a baby’s head to become stuck, posing a substantial risk of infant strangulation.
