Retailers Recall 25,000 Simplicity Play Yards
Several retailers have recalled about 25,000 Simplicity play yards. One or more rails can collapse unexpectedly, posing a fall or entrapment hazard to young children. CPSC is aware of at least five reports of one or more rails collapsing. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled play yards are portable and were sold with a bassinet, changing table and mobile features. The play yards bear the "Simplicity" logo. The model numbers are 5500DRM, 5500WDS, 5500FEL, 5501FEL, 5502MON, 5520PRO, 5550HAN, 5700MAN, and 5750MIR. 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 Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide and online at Babiesrus.com, Target.com and Kohls.com from March 2005 through January 2009 for about $100.
Consumers should immediately stop using the play yards and return them to the place of purchase for a refund or replacement product. For additional information, contact the following retailers:
