Inclined sleepers linked to infant deaths recalled from Target, Ross, others

Indiana-based Dorel Juvenile Group Inc., which makes baby and toddler furniture and accessories, is recalling a line of inclined sleepers after they were linked to infant fatalities.

According to a July 31 notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recall covers about 24,000 of Dorel's line of Eddie Bauer Slumber and Soothe Rock Bassinet and Disney Baby Doze and Dream Bassinet sleepers that were sold at Target Corp., Kmart Corp., Ross Stores Inc., The TJX Companies Inc.-owned Marshalls and T.J. Maxx Inc., as well as juvenile product stores in the U.S. from November 2014 through February 2017 for about $60.

The notice said infant deaths have been reported while using the sleep products after babies rolled from their back to their stomach or side.

Customers who have purchased the sleepers are urged to stop using them and to contact Dorel for a refund in the form of a $60 voucher.

Dorel's recall follows Fisher-Price Inc.'s decision to also recall around 4.7 million infant sleepers that were also linked to infant deaths. Mattel Inc., which owns Fisher-Price, had earlier estimated the recall to cost the company up to $27.3 million, while analysts estimated it to reach $60 million.

Dorel and Fisher-Price's sleepers were manufactured in China.
