The bassinet’s doors and drawers have the potential to open indadvertedly while in motion, and may cause falls, broken bones, and traumatic brain injuries to babies. This is an FDA Class I Recall, which means that there is a reasonable probability that the use of this product will cause serious adverse health consequences and even death.
