CPSC says this Dorel activity center with bassinett poses a
suffocation hazard. Some 213,000 units were recalled; no
incidents or injuries have been reported.


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation Dorel Juvenile Group Inc. of Columbus, IN, announced a voluntary recall of the approximately 213,000 Safety 1st Disney Care Center Play Yards and Eddie Bauer Complete Care Play Yards.

According to CPSC, 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. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The products, made in China, were sold at Babies “R” Us, Kmart, Sears, Target and Walmart from January 2007 through October 2009 for between $100 and $130.

CPSC said consumers should immediately stop using the bassinet attachment to the play yard and contact Dorel Juvenile Group for a free repair kit including replacement bassinet fabric, bassinet bars and installation instructions.
