Recalled play yard The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Kolcraft just recalled 425,000 infant play yards after a 10-month-old baby boy strangled to death. Twelve different models are included in the recall and all of them have a raised changing table with a strap that forms a loop underneath. One model also has a rocking cradle in which children can become trapped and suffocate. There have already been 45 reports of babies rolling to the side of the cradle and getting wedged. These play yards were sold between 2001 and 2007. Check the web site for specific model numbers, then contact the company to get replacement parts.

    Thank you for the information. Thankfully, I do not have one of these. I find it sad that we, as consumers, do not find out about these tragedies until a recall is put into effect. I think that these types of thing should be a matter of public record.
