1 million play yards recalled due to faulty latch
Side rails can collapse unexpectedly, resulting in at least one concussion
About 1 million play yards have been recalled because the side rail can fail to latch properly. A child who pushes against it could fall.
The play yards are sold under the brand names of Kolcraft, Carter's, Sesame Street, Jeep, Contours, Care Bear and Eric Carle. They're manufactured in China, Spain and Italy and distributed by Kolcraft Enterprises Inc. of Chicago.
The company has received 347 reports of play yards' sides collapsing, resulting in 21 injuries, including a concussion, as well as bumps, scrapes and bruises.
The play yards were sold online as well as by Babies R Us, Walmart, Kmart, Sears, Target and other stores around the country between January 2000 and January 2009.
The play yards were produced between December 2000 and July 2008 and sold for between $49 and $160.
Those who have a recalled play yard can order a retrofit kit. For more details, call 866-594-4208 or visit the Web sites http://www.kolcraft.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.
