Portable Playard Tents Recalled

Date:
July 15, 2010
Category:
Play Yards, Gyms & Activity Centers
Company/Brand:
Tots in Mind Inc.
The Danger:
Clips that attach the tent to the top of the playard can break or be removed by a child. A child can lift the tent and become entrapped at the neck between the rigid playard frame and the metal base rod of the tent, posing a strangulation hazard.
Description:
This recall involves about 20,000 dome-shaped white-colored mesh tents designed to fit over playards as small as 28 inches by 40 inches or as large as 31 inches by 44 inches to contain a child (and 85 in Canada). There are 12 plastic clips to secure the base of the tent to the top rail of the playard through button holes along the bottom of the tent. The tent has a zippered side for putting in and taking out the child.
Sold At:
Walmart, Amazon.com and various baby and children's stores nationwide from January 2005 through February 2010 for about $60.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the playard tents and contact Tots in Mind to get free replacement clips. Replacement clips will be available in late August or early September 2010. Contact Tots in Mind toll-free at (800) 626-0339 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.TotsinMind.com
