Fisher-Price has recalled about 1,000 Rainforest Portable Play Yards because one or more rails can collapse unexpectedly, posing a fall or entrapment hazard for babies.
There have been at least 1,350 reports worldwide – including 33 in Canada - of children getting broken bones, bumps and bruises when the side rail on the portable baby bassinet and changing table collapsed, the company said.
Injuries included a broken nose, a broken wrist, a mild concussion, a cut to the hand that required stitches and a chipped tooth.
The recalled items were made by Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc. under the Fisher-Price trademark. Fisher-Price is recalling the product because Simplicity and SFCA were "unresponsive to consumers."
The bassinets were sold across the country from January 2007 through January 2009 for about $170 each.
Some of the Simplicity model numbers, found on a sticker inside one of the legs under the play yard, are 5310 RNF, 5310RNFC and 5310RNFW.
Fisher-Price said it would replace the yards.
