Infant Crib/Tent Recall

Story first appeared in The Wall Street Journal.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said five retailers will voluntarily recall crib tents and play yard tents made by Tots in Mind Inc. due to strangulation and entrapment hazards.

Since Tots in Mind is no longer in business, Amazon.com, Bed, Bath & Beyond Inc., Toys "R" Us Inc., Burlington Coat Factory and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will offer refunds or store credit to consumers. The recalled products were sold at numerous retail stores and online for between $60 and $85.

Tots in Mind had recalled the play yard tents in July 2010 and offered a repair kit that is no longer available. Chicago Products Liability Lawyers urge consumers to stop using these products immediately and to not attempt to repair these products.

The CPSC said it is aware of 27 tent failures, including one fatality and one serious injury, that occurred between January 1997 and April 2012.
