Over the holiday break, many consumers may have missed the news of an important product recall involving thousands of Dorel Juvenile play yards with bassinets, which may pose a suffocation risk to young children.
Dorel Juvenile Group Inc. of Columbus, Ind. and the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall on Dec. 30. The recall involves about 213,000 Safety 1st Disney Care Center Play Yard and Eddie Bauer Complete Care Play Yards.
Metal bars which support the floorboard of the bassinet attachments can come out of the fabric sleeves and create an uneven sleeping surface, posing a risk of suffocation or positional asphyxiation, the CPSC recall notice said.
While no injuries or suffocation incidents have been reported associated with the recalled Dorel play yards with bassinets, the recall was announced in an effort to reduce the risk of such devastating injuries.
