Recall on "Play Yards" with Attachable Bassinet Due to Suffocation Risk

Comments Off

The Chicago Tribune reported that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada, and Dorel Juvenile Group Inc. issued a voluntary recall of Safety 1st Disney Care Center Play Yards and Eddie Bauer Complete Care Play Yards. The "play yards", or play pens, have a bassinet attachment. There is also a mobile and built in changing station. The recall includes about 213,000 items and is taking place because "the one-piece metal bars supporting the floorboard of the bassinet attachment can come out of the fabric sleeves and create an uneven sleeping surface, posing a risk of suffocation or positional asphyxiation." Thankfully, no injuries have been reported. 

Stop using the bassinet attachment immediately to best protect your child! Call Dorel Juvenile Group for a free repair kit if you own this item. The models involved are numbers 05025, 05026, 05037, 05088 and 05350. For more information on the location of item numbers, how to get a repair kit, and the recall in general, please view this article.

Please take action and keep your children safe!
