They’re refusing to recall this??

My husband sent me this link from the Consumerist.

WTF? They’re REFUSING? When it’s clear that their product is deadly??  It needs to be redesigned, people.  So what if there have only been two deaths reported so far.  What are you going to do, wait until there are ten? Twenty? One hundred??  One is too many!

I bet they will claim it was user error.

I am sorry, but there are certain things that simply should be made idiot proof when it comes to babies and children.  Bassinets and cribs are some of those things.  And frankly, the design of that with a bar across the side where a child’s BODY can fit through, but not its HEAD, is completely WRONG.  That is why there are requirements for cribs to only have so much space between the slats, for that very reason!!  Why should it not apply to this device, too?  The child’s body shouldn’t even be able to fit!  Then this issue would not have even arisen.

Ugh! 👿

At least the CPSC is issuing warnings about this bassinet.  I hope people heed it!  It just breaks my heart to read about unnecessary deaths caused by products like this.   And makes me angry to hear that the company refuses to recall their product.
