Bassetbaby, EStyles recall products for hazards

Forbes Magazine reports:

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Bassettbaby and eStyle Inc. each voluntarily recalled certain products because of potential hazards.

The government watchdog said Bassettbaby recalled about 550 of its Wendy Bellissimo Hidden Hills collection of cribs. The spindles could loosen, “creating a gap that poses an entrapment and strangulation hazard,” the CPSC said in its statement. There have been no reports of injuries.

The cribs are made in China and were sold for about $400 at Babies “R” Us. Consumers can return them for full reimbursement or free replacement, the agency said.

EStyle, based in Los Angeles, has recalled its Mini Chef Complete Toy Kitchens because the pegs supporting the oven shelf and refrigerator can come out, causing a choking hazard.

The toys were made in Thailand and sold at Babystyle stores last year for about $200.

Neither company immediately returned calls seeking comment.
