A line of infant baskets and stands is being recalled due to safety concerns.

This week, Sleeping Partners announced its intention to recall its Tadpoles Baby and Kids Moses Basket and Stand. The product fails to meet the federal hand held infant carrier standard and the stand fails to meet the bassinet/cradle standard. The basket can slide off an inclined surface and the stand can tip, both of which pose a fall hazard for infants.

The Moses basket is made from natural tan wild palm leaves and measures about 33 inches long by 14 inches tall and 10 inches wide. The stand has a pine wood frame, a fabric platform and polyester rope design. The stand measures 17 inches tall by 14 inches wide and 15 inches wide when extended. "Tadpoles" is printed on the clear plastic wrapping on the Moses baskets and stands.

The company is recalling about 5,500 baskets and 800 stands. No injuries have been reported.

These items were sold at Babies R Us and buybuy Baby and online at Amazon.com, Bellacor.com, Kohls.com, Quidsi.com, Wayfair.com and Zulily.com. The basket was sold from April 2014 through July 2015 for between $50 and $90, while the stand was sold from June 2014 through July 2015 for between $25 and $35.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled items and contact the firm for instructions on returning the basket and stand to receive a store credit. Customers can contact Sleeping Partners at (844) 489-9498 for additional information.
