CSPC announces recalls for Browning pistol holster, Kolcraft bassinet part

Browning
This Browning holster, which sold for about $80, presents a hazard if it clicks off the safety.

The Browning Arms Co. of Morgan, Utah, has voluntarily recalled leather holsters that may flip off the safety when pulled from the holster, according to the U.S. Product Safety Commission.

Users may be unaware that the Browning 1911-380 and 1911-22 pistols may be in a fireable state when removed from the holsters, posing an injury hazard to themselves and others, the CSPC announced Friday.

Browning has received one report of the safety switching to the “off” position, although no injuries have been reported.

The holsters, manufactured in China, are brown with yellow stitching with the Browning buckmark logo branded on the front. They can be identified by Item No. 12904011 and UPC Code 023614843702, which are printed on the back of the packaging.

The holsters were sold for about $80 in sporting goods nationwide and online at www.browning.com from September 2017 through December 2019.

The company asks that consumers stop using the holsters and contact Browning for a free replacement.

In another CPSC action, Kolcraft recalled the inclined sleeper accessories on its Cuddle ‘n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleepers and Preferred Position 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleepers because of the potential risk of suffocation. At issue are model numbers starting with KB063 on the Cuddle ‘n Care and model numbers starting with KB061 on the Preferred Position. The model numbers are on the metal bar between the bassinets’ legs.  The inclined sleeper is the only portion of the product subject to the recall.

Although infants have died of suffocation while using other companies’ inclined sleepers, none has been reported with the Kolcraft models.

Consumers can continue to use the bassinet without the inclined sleeper accessory.

Kolcraft also is contacting registered owners and known purchasers via postcard.

Consumers should stop using the accessory immediately and contact the company for a $35 voucher to be used on its website or a $20 refund, according to the recall notice. Kolcraft can be reached at (800) 453-7673 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday , email customerservice@kolcraft.com, or online at www.kolcraft.com and click on “Incline Sleeper Recall” or “Safety Notifications.

The voucher can be used until Feb. 20, 2022.
