The bassinets have a dark brown wooden headboard and footboard and a cotton bassinet that comes in a variety of colors and patterns. “Eddie Bauer” is printed on a metal plate on the bassinet’s footboard.

Recalled bassinets have the following model numbers: 10632, 10639, 10832, 10835, 10839 and BT021.
