Kolcraft Recalls 1 Million Play Yards Due to Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Kolcraft announced a voluntary recall of Kolcraft, Carter’s, Sesame Street, Jeep, Contours, Care Bear and Eric Carle Play Yards. This recall affects an estimated 1 million units.

The play yard’s side rail can fail to latch properly. When a child pushes against the rail it can unlatch unexpectedly, and pose a fall hazard to children. There have been 347 reports of sides of the play yard collapsing unexpectedly, resulting in 21 injuries to young children, including bumps, scrapes, bruises and one concussion.

The Play Yards were sold between January 2000 through January 2009.

If you own one of these, you should immediately stop using the play yard and contact Kolcraft for a free repair kit. You can contact them toll-free at (866) 594-4208 or visit
