(KMOV)—Arms Reach Concepts Inc. has issued a recall of about 76,000 infant bedside sleepers because of suffocation or entrapment risks.
 
The sleeper or co-sleeper is a bassinette which attaches to an adult bed and allows the child to be within arm’s reach.
 
Arms Reach Concepts Inc. says infants can fall of the mattress onto loose fabric, posing the risk of suffocation or entrapment.

The sleepers were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Babies R Us and other retail stores nationwide from September 1997 to December 2001.
