RECALL: 213,000 Dorel Juvenile Group Play Yards with Bassinets Due to Suffocation Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Dorel Juvenile Group, today announced a voluntary recall of about 213,000 Safety 1st Disney Care Center™ Play Yard and Eddie Bauer Complete Care Play Yard 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.
The play yards are portable and were sold with a bassinet attachment and a built-in changing station. Models included in this recall are 05025, 05026, 05037, 05088 and 05350. The model number is printed on a sticker on one of the support legs underneath the play yard. “Safety 1st” or “Eddie Bauer” are printed near the bottom of the fabric sides of the play yards.
Consumers should immediately stop using the bassinet attachment to the play yard and contact Dorel Juvenile Group toll-free at (866) 762-2166 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site www.djgusa.com for a free repair kit including replacement bassinet fabric, bassinet bars and installation instructions.
