Kolcraft play yards have been recalled due to a fall hazard. The play yards include a side rail that can fail to close properly. The latches on the side rails can open unexpectedly, causing a child to fall, according to an announcement by The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. About one million of the play yards made in China, Spain and Italy, were imported by Kolcraft Enterprises of Chicago, Ill., and sold nationwide between January 2000 and January 2009 for between $50 and $160.
Kolcraft, has received 347 reports of sides of the play yard collapsing unexpectedly, resulting in 21 injuries to young children, including bumps, scrapes, bruises and one concussion.
This recall involves the Kolcraft Travelin’ Tot play yards, as well as other similar play yards manufactured for Carter’s, Sesame Street, Jeep, Contours, Care Bare and Eric Carle, with model numbers listed below. Some of the units have a bassinet and/or changing table. Some models have a mobile, vibrating unit or a parent organizer. Model numbers are printed on a white sticker on one of the feet of the play yard.
Some of the models of the play yards involved in this recall were recalled in September 2007 due to a strangulation hazard posed by the changing table, which resulted in the death of a ten-month-old child. The play yards were sold at Babies R Us, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Sears, Target and other stores nationwide and Internet retailers from January 2000 through January 2009 for between $50 and $160. Consumers should immediately stop using the play yard and contact Kolcraft for a free repair kit.
