Recall of Play Yards with Bassinets Due to Suffocation Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Safety 1st and Eddie Bauer, have announced a voluntary recall of the Safety 1st Disney Care Center™ Play Yard and Eddie Bauer Complete Care Play Yard. You should stop using recalled products immediately and contact Dorel Juvenile Play Group for a repair kit.

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.

They were sold at Babies “R” Us, Kmart, Sears, Target and Walmart from January 2007 through October 2009.
