An infant product from Bednest is now subject to a recall due to safety concerns.

The company has announced that it is recalling its Bednest Bedside Infant Sleepers. The items fail to meet mandatory federal requirements for these products, posing a fall hazard to babies. The company believes that about 500 of the sleepers are potentially defective.

The recall applies to sleepers manufactured after July 2014. The date of manufacture is stamped underneath the base of the bedside sleepers. The Bednest has beech wood ends with white fabric sides over metal frames on a beech wood height-adjustable stand. It measures about 34 inches long by 18.5 inches wide. There are sewn-in Bednest labels on the fabric side panel and on the upper surface of the mattress.

Consumers could purchase these items online at Bednest's website from March 2010 through December 2015 for between $400 and $500. They were also available for rent for between $170 and $200.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

Owners should immediately stop using the recalled bedside sleeper while the sides are in the fully open position. Bednest is providing a free repair kit that will permanently lock the side rail into place. The firm is contacting all known consumers directly. It is estimated that the repair kits will be sent out by June 15, 2016.
