Linglestown Gazette: Bassinet sales halted after death

Bassinet sales halted after death

This consumer-safety alert was brought to my attention by a Gazette reader. I've seen articles about this tragic situation on national wire services, but I decided to post it here just in case parents of newborns in the greater Linglestown area are not in the know.
Attention parents of infants – If you are using a "close-sleeper/bedside sleeper" bassinet made by Simplicity, be sure to check out the two links below to see if your model is the one that has caused the death of at least two infants:

* U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission press release (includes photo), dated Aug. 27, 2008

* Washington Post article, dated Aug. 29, 2008.

Thanks so much for posting this. There's a minimal chance that a death of someone from this area would have this happen to them, probably slightly better odds than winning the lottery, but the death of a child is not something anyone wants to experience and not something to take lightly. Again, thanks so much.
