The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced yesterday that Arm’s Reach Concepts Infant Bed-Side Sleepers (manufactured by Arm’s Reach Concepts Inc in China) could pose a hazard to babies if installed improperly.  If the liner is not used or assembled improperly, the Infant Bed Side Sleepers (aka Co Sleepers) pose entrapment, suffocation and risk of falls.  So far 10 reports of babies falling from the raised mattress or becoming entrapped between the edge & side of the co sleeper.  No injuries have been reported.

Approximately 76,000 Arm’s Reach Concepts Infant Bed-Side Sleepers were sold between 1997 & 2001 with the following model numbers:

Original model numbers:      8108, 8133, 8111, 8112 & 8199

BabyEcoTrends.com has never carried this products but it was sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Babies R Us and other retail stores nationwide for about $160.  Consumers my contact Arm’s Reach Concepts to download assembly instructions or may request printed instructions via postal mail.
