Product Recall - Simplicity Play Yards

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher Price have announced the recall of about 200,000 Rainforest Portable Play Yards because one or more of the rails can collapse, posing a fall or entrapment hazard to young children. The play yards were made by Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc. According to CPSC, the manufacturer has been unresponsive to their requests for a recall as well as to consumers who have complained about the play yards.

CPSC has received 1,350 reports of one or more rails collapsing, numerous reports of children receiving bumps and bruises when the side rail collapsed and five reports of injuries which included a broken nose, a broken wrist, a mild concussion, a cut requiring stitches and a chipped tooth.

The recalled play yards are portable and sold with a bassinet, changing table and mobile features. They have a Rainforest patterned fabric and themed artwork and bear the Fisher-Price logo. The Simplicity model numbers are: 5310 RNF, 5310RNFC, and 5310RNFW. You can find these model numbers 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 each.

If you have one of the recalled play yards, you should stop using it immediately. Although they were not responsible for manufacturing or selling the play yards, Fisher-Price has agreed to assist consumers who own the faulty products. If yours has a Fisher-Price logo, contact Fisher-Price to obtain help in obtaining a replacement. You can reach them by calling (800) 432-5437 anytime or by visiting their Web site.
