Fisher-Price has recalled about 200,000 Rainforest Portable Play Yards manufactured by Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc. One or more rails can collapse unexpectedly, posing a fall or entrapment hazard. There have been at least 1,350 reports of one or more rails collapsing. There were numerous reports of children receiving bumps and bruises when the side rail collapsed. There were five reports of injuries which included a broken nose, a broken wrist, a mild concussion, a cut to the hand which required stitches, and a chipped tooth.
The recalled play yards are portable and were sold with a bassinet, changing table, and mobile features. The products have a Rainforest-patterned fabric, Rainforest-themed artwork, and bear the "Fisher-Price" logo. The Simplicity Inc. model numbers are 5310 RNF, 5310RNFC, and 5310RNFW. The model number is located on a sticker on one of the legs underneath the play yard. The play yards were made in China and sold at retailers and specialty children's stores nationwide from January 2007 through January 2009 for about $100.
Consumers should stop using the play yards immediately. Although it did not manufacture or sell the play yards, Fisher-Price has voluntarily agreed to assist consumers who own the products. Consumers who own one of the recalled play yards with the Fisher-Price logo should contact Fisher-Price to obtain assistance to replace their play yards.
