EMERGENCY RECALL – Children’s Play Yards Recalled due to Strangulation Risk 

KENTUCKY (12/9/2014) - The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall on a children’s item sold nationwide.

The Dream on Me manufacturer has recalled an item called the “Incredible Play Yard” due to strangulation risk. Dream on Me states that the issue is with the potential for the play yards’ rails collapsing, presenting a strangulation hazard for young children.

The recall includes Dream On Me Incredible two-level deluxe adjustable height play yards with model number starting with 436A, 436B, 436G, 436O, 436P and 436R. The play yards, made with a steel, powder-coated frame base with rolling, hooded casters, have a fabric and mesh covering that comes in a variety of colors. The play yard includes a changing top, a toy bar with soft toys for entertainment, a side pocket for storage 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 yard’s mattress. The play yard can be folded for storage.

This item is sold online at Amazon, Kohls, Toys R US, WalMart, Wayfair and other online retailers from March 2010 through January 2014 for about $60.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled play yards and contact Dream On Me to receive a free repair kit.
