Simplicity convertible bassinets recalled for safety hazard

Health Canada is alerting consumers Simplicity 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible bassinets are being recalled because they pose entrapment and suffocation dangers.

Health Canada warns that if Velcro flaps on the bassinets are not properly secured, an infant can slip through an opening and become trapped between the metal bars.

The recall affects the following models produced before April 1, 2008:


  • 3122TGC.
  • 3010BIJ.
  • 3012LLT.
  • 486000.
  • 5710ZOL.
  • 3040LAC.
  • 3050SAR.
  • 3050SWT.
  • 3040SPR.
  • 3040SPRC.
  • 3045DRMC.
  • 3050SWTC.
  • 3045OXFC.

Health Canada has learned of one infant slipping through an opening in the bassinet. No injuries were reported. Consumers should stop using the bassinet and contact Elfe Juvenile products for a repair kit.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in late August issued an advisory warning the public the Simplicity 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 close sleeper models posed a danger to infants. Two infants became entrapped in the metal bars and died, the CPSC said.
