Recall Alert: Dream on Me Drop-Side Cribs

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Dream On Me recalled about 22,000 drop-side cribs late last night because the drop-side rail hardware can break or fail, causing entrapment, suffocation, laceration and fall hazards. The recall applies to both full-size and portable drop-side cribs, and the CPSC knows of 69 incidents involving the cribs. The cribs are made of wood and come painted or stained in black, cherry, dark brown, natural, white and pink, and have been sold at Toys “R” Us, Walmart, Target and Amazon.com.
Below is a list of the affected models. You’ll find the model number and “Dream On Me” printed on a label on the inside of one of the end panels (full-size cribs) or on the mattress board (portable cribs).
Full-size cribs: 613, 615, 616, 617, 619, 628, 639
Portable cribs: 621, 625, 627
If you have one of the affected models, stop using it immediately and contact Dream On Me for replacement information. Consumers with full-size models will be given a free kit (starting June 30) that will immobilize the drop-side rail, and moms with the portable models will receive a free replacement portable crib with fixed sides (starting in mid-July). Contact Dream On Me at (877) 201-4317 between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or visit its website for more information.

More than 23,000 Dream On Me spring and foam mattresses for cribs and toddler beds have been recalled due to a fire hazard risk. According to an alert sent out by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, these items, made by the Piscataway, New Jersey-based company, failed to meet the mandatory federal flammability standards for mattresses.

The CPSC says no injuries have been reported, but consumers who own these products should stop using them immediately. The recalled mattresses were sold in a variety of colors and prints on Amazon.com, Kohls.com, ToyRUs.com, Walmart.com, and Wayfair.com from January 2016 through December 2016 for between $40 and $90.

If you’re not sure if you own one of the recalled items, the model number and date of manufacture are printed on a tag on the top center of the mattress. You can also find a complete list of models recalled here. If youd own one, contact Dream On Me to receive a free mattress cover that will bring the mattress into compliance with the federal flammability standard.

Investing in your baby’s first bed is such an important buying decision.

Most parents do their research and choose a baby crib and mattress carefully. It needs to be a solid investment. But what if you’ve found the mattress and crib that you’ve fallen in love with and it gets recalled. That can be tough for parents, but you need not worry.

Recalls on baby products these days are relatively rare. Usually, when companies are recalling a crib or a baby mattress, they are taking the proactive approach to safety (voluntary recall), at least in the U.S. Knowing that, here is my list of baby crib and mattress recalls so you can continue to check your brand.

In rare instances the official Consumer Product Safety Commission will issue warnings.

In the past 10 years, we’ve come a long way with baby safety efforts but there will always be recalls on baby cribs and mattresses if only proactive ones.

What to know when buying a baby crib

Buying a baby crib and mattress that you’ll love, that is also safest for your little one is important. Here are some buying guide tips to purchase the safest sleep system for your new one (from Consumer Reports):

Don’t go for all the bells and whistles

“The safest cribs have simple lines and no scrollwork or finials. Infants can strangle if their clothing gets caught in such detail work. Following this advice will get you a safer crib and save you money.” Don’t be fooled by new design trends, a basic crib is going to be a better investment in safety. There are plenty of ways you can design the baby’s room to add personality, don’t feel that you have to do that with bedding. Safety is best.

Buy something new

Avoid hand-me-down or used cribs as much as possible. Safety standards have changed over the past few decades and would have been a perfectly safe crib 20 years ago is not going to be a safe today. Many things can go wrong with older cribs, one of which could be due to human error when taking down and assembling the crib again. There are many affordable new cribs that won’t break the bank. If your mother-in-law insists you use your husbands old crib, politely say ‘no thank you’ and invest in one you know will be safe.

Always check construction: do your research

Before you buy, do your homework. Research the materials used in the construction of the crib, mattress and get honest reviews from actual buyers. When assembling, check for loose parts, defects in the wood, and anything that looks amiss.

Get the pros to assemble

Most cribs get shipped in boxes and need full assembly. As tempting as it can be to tackle this project on your own, I would strongly advise against that. It isn’t as expensive as you might think to get some pros to assemble. Isn’t $70 worth your piece of mind? A lot of baby crib and mattress recalls will happen because of human error in assembly. If possible get the pros on it. If not, at least set the crib up with a trusted friend.

Follow instructions

Cribs come with a lot of instructions on how to assemble and use. Knowing the right height for your baby, how to adjust the side rails — it all matters to the safety of your little one. Cribs get safer every year, but that doesn’t mean human error can cause problems. Don’t use bumper pads or extra bedding either. Babies don’t need pillows and lots of bedding to sleep comfortably anyway.

Amazon Recalls All Infant Inclined Sleepers from their Website

Just before the end of the year, Amazon takes off all kinds of infant inclined sleepers even those who have not been officially recalled, due to numerous cases connected with infant death. They say this decision is due to the fact that these sleepers are not safe for use since they have an angle of 10 to 30 degrees, providing an unsafe position for babies who can roll when they are asleep.

In fact, there have been numerous reports of infants who have died because they have fallen asleep in an angle that has restricted their pathways and has caused them a fatality. With this decision, the company thinks it’s about time these sleepers are taken off the market, as a precaution and with one goal – to provide the safest products for infants that will not lead to any hazards in the future.

The Cool Baby Portable Cot was recalled in August 2019 due to a missing label on the cot that states that parents cannot use any other mattress than the one sold with the cot, due to risk of choking and entrapment.

The company had announced that the sleeper is not for babies who can roll themselves alone, but since many of the babies who died were under 3 months old, they are obliged to make this recall and to stop further incidents. If you have purchased this baby sleeper for your little one, you should immediately contact Fisher-Price for a refund.

Dream on Me Recalls 2-in-1 Bassinet to Cradle

Laura McElveen WLTX Published 3:34 PM EST Mar 3, 2015 Dream on Me 2-in-1 Bassinet to Cradle Courtesy: Consumer Product Safety Commission

Washington DC (WLTX) — News 19 is on your side with a bassinet recall.

Dream on Me is recalling about 13,000 of their 2-in-1 Bassinet to Cradle products due to fall and suffocation hazards

Officials say the wire supports on the sides of the bassinet can disconnect causing the fabric sides to lower; posing a risk that infants can fall out or become trapped and suffocate.

This recall involves the 2-in-1 Bassinet to Cradle, sold in pink, blue, green, and white. The bassinet has metal frame supports and fabric sides with a removable half-canopy on the top. The frame can also be adjusted with two rocking legs on each end of the bassinet. It is designed with fabric handles and the option to remove the bassinet from the frame to use the bassinet portion as a “by the bed” sleeper product.

The recalled model numbers are 439-A, 439-B, 439-G, 439-P and 439-W, located on a tag under the mattress pad of the bassinet. This tag is a removable tag you see in the store, but it is removed prior to use.

It is possible the model number identifying tag will not be on your bassinet. If that is the case, you should immediately stop using it until you contact Dream On Me for verification.

The product was sold online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Wayfair.com, ToysRUs.com and Kohls.com from May 2012 to October 2014 for about $60.

Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact Dream On Me to obtain a free repair.

In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a crib that meets current safety standards or play yard depending on the child’s age.

Consumer Product Enforcement Summary Report: Cyclical Enforcement Project 2016-2017: Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations

Fiscal Year 2016-2017

Summary

The Consumer Product Safety Program (CPSP) administers and enforces the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) and regulations made under it.

The purpose of this Cyclical Enforcement (CE) project was to verify industry’s compliance of bassinets which are subject to the Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations.

For this project, compliance of select bassinets with the Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations was determined through an inspection process, by which Health Canada inspectors requested establishments to provide laboratory testing results that show compliance to the construction, performance and labelling requirements listed under the Regulations.

Prior to initiating this CE project, the CPSP carried out a market survey to determine the presence of bassinet companies in Canada. Targets were then selected from that list of companies.

Over the course of the 2016-2017 fiscal year, test reports for 25 different products were requested. The evaluation of these resulted in 6 voluntary recalls, 2 stop distributions and 1 commitment to correct labelling violations. There were 16 instances where no corrective action was required.

Results

Readers should consult the individual recall and safety notices, if applicable, for details of the products subject to this enforcement action.

Products are not randomly selected but are chosen because they are deemed by the inspector to be more likely to not meet health and safety requirements due to characteristics that are observed.
