5.13.09: Eddie Bauer Play Yards Recalled
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Dorel Juvenile Group Inc., of Columbus, Indiana announced a voluntary recall of about 71,000 Eddie Bauer Soothe & Sway Play Yards.  The play yard’s rocking bassinet attachment can tilt even when secured by straps in the non-rocking mode or can stay tilted without returning to a level sleeping surface while in the rocking mode, causing an infant to roll to the corner or side of the bassinet.
