Play Yards May Pose Suffocation Risk, Recalled

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada have announced a voluntary recall, Thursday, of about 213,000 play yards with bassinet attachments imported by Dorel Juvenile Group. Particular brands include Safety 1st Disney Care Center Play Yards and Eddie Bauer Complete Care Play Yards.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says one of the metal bars supporting the bassinet attachment can slip out and cause the sleeping surface to be uneven, this in turn could lead to a suffocation. There have not been any incidents reported to date.

The play yards are portable and have a bassinet attachment and built-in changing table. Model numbers included are 05025, 05026, 05037, 05088, and 05350. The model number should be found on a sticker attached to one of the support legs underneath the play yard.

The play yards were sold at several major retailers such as Kmart, Sears, Walmart, and others, from January 2007 through this October.

If you own one of these play yards stop using the bassinet attachment immediately and contact Dorel Juvenile Group for a free repair kit including replacement bassinet fabric, bassinet bars and installation instructions.
