"Cuddle Me Close" Bedside Cradles
Peru, IN (SafetyAlerts) - W.C. Redmon Co. is
recalling about 1,800 "Cuddle Me Close" bedside cradles for repair. The
legs on the cradles can become loose and can separate, causing the cradle to tip.
Redmon has received about 50 reports
of the cradles' legs becoming loose or separating, including two reports of cradles
tipping. No injuries have been reported.
The wooden cradle is for infants from
birth to 3 months of age and attaches to an adult bed to keep the baby within arm's reach.
It is painted white and comes with four wooden legs. Each leg has three segments to adjust
the height of the cradle. Infant product catalogs, including One Step Ahead and Popular
Club, and juvenile product stores, including Babies R Us and several small independent
stores, sold the cradles nationwide for about $149 beginning in February 1998.
Consumers should stop using the
Cuddle Me Close cradle immediately and call Redmon collect at (765) 473-6683 Monday
through Friday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST for free replacement legs. Consumers can also
write to W.C. Redmon Co., P.O. Box 7, Peru, Ind. 46970.
