Product recalls involving products used by children are particularly troubling. The latest in a series of childrens’ product recalls involves Dream on Me playpens. The recall affects approximately 10,000 “Incredible Play Yards” wheeled playpens.
According to the playpen manufacturer, the steel rails can collapse, causing the side walls to come down and resulting in the risk of entrapment and strangulation.
The recalled playpens were manufactured in China and sold from March 2010 to January 2014 for about $60. Retailers who sold the recalled playpens include Wal-mart, Amazon, Kohls and Toys”R”Us.
This product recall includes Dream On Me Incredible two-level deluxe adjustable height play yards with model numbers starting with 436A, 436B, 436G, 436O, 436P and 436R. The recalled play pens are made with a steel, powder-coated frame base with rolling, hooded casters and have a fabric and mesh covering that comes in a variety of colors. The play pen includes a changing top, a toy bar with soft toys, a side storage pocket and a carrying case. “Dream On Me” is printed on the bottom left-hand side outside of the product. The model number is printed on a label attached to the play pen’s mattress. The play pen can be folded for storage
Consumers who have purchased “Incredible Play Yard” should stop using it immediately and contact Dream On Me for a free repair kit. When making second hand purchases and when selling second hand products, consumers should be aware that Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
