Hazard identified

Moses baskets are bassinets in Canada. Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that these bassinets do not meet the Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations in Canada. Specifically, the product is unstable and can tip over, posing an injury hazard. In addition, the ribbon from the hood is too long and if pulled into the sleeping area, may pose a strangulation hazard to the child.
