The following recalls have been announced:
—About 500,000 bassinets made by Burlington Basket Co. recalled over concerns that they could collapse if not assembled properly. All bassinets were made by the Iowa-based company before June of last year. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the bassinets can collapse if the support rails that hold the basket are not fully locked into place. CPSC and the company have received 10 reports of incidents in which the bassinets collapsed when the folding legs were not locked properly. Two infants received minor injuries. Consumers can contact the company at 800-553-2300 for repair kits and more information.
—About 1,200 children's "light up" watches imported by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts of Lake Buena Vista, Fla. CPSC says the watch battery current can interact with nickel in the watch's stainless steel back, causing skin irritations or burning sensations to children who are allergic to nickel. The firm has received six reports of children with skin irritation or burning sensations while wearing the watch, which was made by Time Industrial Manufactory Limited, of Hong Kong. The recall involves Buzz Lightyear, Tinker Bell and Lightning McQueen brand light-up watches. They were sold at Disneyland Resort stores in California and Walt Disney World Resort stores in Florida as well as a few other Disney-related stores from last November through last month.

Consumers can contact the company at 888-559-4653 for more information on reimbursement of the purchase price.
—About 3,500 food dehydrators with digital timers distributed by LEM Products of Harrison, Ohio. The screws that secure the motor to the back panel can come loose, causing the motor to fall on the heating element, posing a fire hazard.

Consumers can call the company at 877-425-4509 for more information on receiving a repair kit.
