SAN ANTONIO -

A popular rocking bassinet is among several baby products recalled for safety reasons, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission www.cpsc.gov.

Juvenile Group recalled 97,000 Eddie Bauer Rocking Wood Bassinets because they pose a strangulation hazard.

The locking mechanism can fail to lock properly if a spring is not installed, allowing the bassinet to tip to one side and causing the baby to roll to the side.

Parents should contact the manufacturer for a free repair kit.  More information can be found at the company's website www.djgusa.com.

Dream On Me recalled two products: the Happy Swing II and Bistro High Chair because they pose strangulation risks.

Babies not buckled into the seats can slip through the opening, trapping their heads.  No incidents have been reported.

The swing is model 432, and the high chair is model 255.

Parents can get more information, including instructions on how to get a free replacement, at the firm's website www.dreamonme.com.

Trend Lab recalled nearly 17,000 upholstered toddler chairs sold online at several major retailers. The staples can come loose in the binding on the back, creating a laceration or choking risk.

The chairs have been sold since 2007.More informatin on the recalled chair can be found at www.trend-lab.com.

Thousands of fleece hoodie and t-shirt sets sold at Target last fall are recalled because of excessive levels of lead in the zipper coating.

The hoodies feature Disney characters Snow White, Mickey Mouse and Cars.  The clothing was made by Children's Apparel Network.  The recalled clothing should be returned to Target for a refund.
