The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling 213,000 Safety 1st Disney Care Center Play Yards and Eddie Bauer Complete Care Play Yards.

The problem is the one piece metal bars supporting the floorboard of the bassinet attachment may come out of the fabric sleeves and create an uneven sleeping surface and pose a suffocation or positional asphyxiation hazard.

No children have been injured.

Babies ‘R Us, Kmart, Sears, Target and Wal-Mart all sold these from January 2007 through October 2009 for between $100 and $130.

The play yards are portable and were sold with a bassinet attachment and a built-in changing station. Models included in this recall are 05025, 05026, 05037, 05088 and 05350. The model number is printed on a sticker on one of the support legs underneath the play yard. “Safety 1st” or “Eddie Bauer” are printed near the bottom of the fabric sides of the play yards. (See the attached pictures.)

If you have one of these you should stop using the bassinet attachment to the play yard and contact Dorel Juvenile Group for a free repair kit including replacement bassinet fabric, bassinet bars and installation instructions. The number is 1-866-762-2166 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Friday. You can also learn more at the company’s web site.

Dorel is the same importer that recalled a half a million infant car carriers/seats earlier this month because the handles can break.
