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.
The recalled play yards are portable and were sold with a bassinet, changing table, and mobile features. The products have a Rainforest patterned fabric and 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.
Retailers and specialty children's stores nationwide sold the play yards from January 2007 through January 2009 for about $100. The products were manufactured in China.
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.
