If our children are some of the most precious things on the planet, why are so many children's products so dangerous? Everyday the Consumer Product Safety Commission announces recalls, and it is often baby and toddler products that are found to be defective.
Recently, the Dream On Me Play Yards for children have been recalled from store shelves and online retailers. The play yard's rails can collapse, presenting a strangulation hazard. No reports of accidents or injuries have been reported, but Dream On Me has recalled all five models of play yards. The play yards were sold between March 2010 and January 2014.
If you have purchased a Dream On Me Play Yard, immediately stop using the product and contact Dream On Me to receive a free repair kit.
