Consumer Alert: Play Yard recall

Parents warned of strangulation hazard


Parents should be aware of a possible problem with about 10,000 play yards from Dream On Me. A recall posted on the website of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission shows the company is concerned about a potential strangulation hazard.

Consumers should immediately stop using the play yards and contact the company for a free repair kit. The company said the rails of the play yards could collapse, putting children at risk. At this time, the company says no injuries have been reported.
