Recalls Week of 5/14: Crib Tents and Play Yard Tents by Tots in Mind + Safety First Toilet and Cabinet Locks
Posted by The Baby News
Crib Tents and Play Yard Tents by Tots in Mind
Products include the Portable Playard Tent, Original Cozy Crib Tent, Cozy Crib Tent 2, Crib Tent for Convertible Cribs, and Portable Playard Tent Plus Cabana Kit. The company itself is no longer in business and has stopped all sales, but the tents were still available in places like Bed Bath & Beyond, Toys R Us, and Amazon.com.
The recall includes various models of about 330,000 crib or play yard tents. There are no model names or numbers located on the tents, but you can identify your tent by the 2”x 1 1/12” label with the Tots in Mind logo located on the non-mesh portion near the top of the tent, or by the picture found here.
Infants and toddlers are at risk of serious injury or death due to strangulation and entrapment hazards presented by these products. This is the second recall of the tents; the first was in July 2010 for a play yard tent that offered a repair kit that is no longer available.
Safety First Toilet and Cabinet Locks
The toilet lock attaches to the tank behind the lid and is intended to prevent a child’s access to the toilet bowl, and the cabinet slide lock is attached to cabinet knobs or handles to prevent access to the contents of the cabinet.
Young children can disengage the toilet locks and gain access to the water in the toilet, posing the risk of drowning. The cabinet locks are being recalled because young children can disengage the lock, posing the risk of injury from dangerous or unsafe items stored in the cabinet. CPSC recommends that you immediately remove the recalled locks and contact DJG for a free replacement lock of a different model. Meanwhile, store dangerous items in a safe place.
