Kolcraft Voluntarily Recalls Certain Models of Tender Vibes & Light Vibes Bassinet

Today Kolcraft announced a voluntary recall in cooperation with the CPSC. Although we have made many bassinets with the name “Tender Vibes” and “Light Vibes”, only 4 models are part of the recall. This recall involves Tender Vibes models KB021-ARC and KB022-VER, Tender Vibes Rocking Bassinet model KB039-CMR1, and Light Vibes bassinet KB043-BNT1. You can find your model number on your unit frame.

The locking clip can appear to be locked on these models, but remain unlocked. This could allow the bassinet to fall resulting in injury. If you have one of these models, please call 888-624-1908 to order a repair strap that will make sure the lock is fully locked.

The Kolcraft family remains committed to making the best products for your children and we apologize for any inconvenience this causes you.

    I DO have one of the Bassinets on Recall (Tender Vibes Deluxe Rocking Bassinet Polka Dot Cover). I did email the company, as I currently do not have a phone. Is this method as effective as calling? Or will my email get lost among the millions they get everyday?
