WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

 

Name of Product: Rainforest(tm) Portable Play Yards manufactured by Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc.

 

Units: About 200,000

 

Manufacturer: Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc., of Reading, Pa.

 

(Note: Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc. have not responded to CPSC's request to recall these products nor have they been responsive to consumer complaints recently received.)

 

Hazard: One or more rails can collapse unexpectedly, posing a fall or entrapment hazard to young children.

 

Incidents/Injuries: Due to Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc. being unresponsive to consumers via their Hotline and Web site, a significant number of complaints were recently reported. There have been at least 1,350 reports of one or more rails collapsing. There were numerous reports of children receiving bumps and bruises when the side rail collapsed. There were five reports of injuries which included a broken nose, a broken wrist, a mild concussion, a cut to the hand which required stitches, and a chipped tooth.

 

Description: The recalled play yards are portable and were sold with a bassinet, changing table, and mobile features. The products have a Rainforest(tm) patterned fabric, Rainforest themed artwork and bear the "Fisher-Price" logo. The Simplicity Inc. model numbers are 5310 RNF, 5310RNFC, and 5310RNFW. The model number is located on a sticker on one of the legs underneath the play yard.

 

Sold at: Retailers and specialty children's stores nationwide from January 2007 through January 2009 for about $100.

 

Manufactured in: China

 

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the play yards immediately. Although it did not manufacture or sell the play yards, Fisher-Price has voluntarily agreed to assist consumers who own the products. Consumers who own one of the recalled play yards with the Fisher-Price logo should contact Fisher-Price to obtain assistance to replace their play yards.

 

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 anytime or visit the Web site at http://www.service.mattel.com
