Baby bassinet recalled

HONOLULU (KHNL) - The government is recalling a baby bassinet after the deaths of two children.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is telling parents that have a "close-sleeper bedside sleeper" bassinet made by Simplicity, to stop using the product immediately.

Two infants died when they apparently slipped through the metal side bars and strangled.

The government says the three-in-one and four-in-one bassinets contain metal bars that are spaced farther apart than federal standards allow.

Wal-Mart, one of the largest distributors of the product, said Thursday it is pulling the bassinets off of its shelves and its Web site.
