Parents are being warned not to use baby bassinets made by Simplicity Inc. after a Kansas child became the second to be strangled by improperly spaced bars.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the 5-month-old girl from Shawnee died last week after she became entrapped. Last September a southwest Missouri baby died in one of the sleepers.

CPSC is issuing this safety alert because SFCA Inc., the company which purchased all of Simplicity Inc.’s assets at public auction in April 2008, has refused to cooperate with the government and recall the products. SFCA maintains that it is not responsible for products previously manufactured by Simplicity Inc.
