Issue

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that these products do not meet Canada's Playpens Regulations.

Specifically, if an unattended infant is placed cross-wise on the bassinet inlay without the accompanying mattress support board, an uneven sleeping surface may be created posing a potential risk of injury or death due to suffocation.

As of June 17, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries related to this product worldwide.
