CPSC is once again urging all parents and caregivers to immediately stop using convertible "close-sleeper/bedside sleeper" bassinets manufactured by Simplicity Inc., of Reading, Pa. CPSC has learned of two additional infant deaths since the August 2008 safety alert and recall announcements. To date, CPSC is aware of four infants who have died in the close-sleeper bassinets.
We are very concerned that not enough families know about this critically important recall. We want consumers to stop using the bassinet and take it back to the place of purchase for a refund or store credit.

Due to the life-threatening hazard these bassinets pose to infants, CPSC urges all consumers to share this safety warning with friends, family, day care centers, and consignment stores to ensure that no child is placed to sleep in a Simplicity convertible bassinet cove
