The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Eddie Bauer company have recalled nearly “76,600 Eddie Bauer Soothe & Sway Play Yards, sold in the U.S. and Canada and distributed by Dorel Juvenile Group Inc., of Columbus, Ind., because of a suffocation hazard to an infant.”  According to the recall, the play yard’s “rocking bassinet” attachment has the propensity to tilt when secured by straps, causing it to stay tilted without returning to a level sleeping surface while the product is in its rocking mode. A tilted sleeping surface can cause an infant to roll and become wedged in the side or corner of the product, “presenting a risk of suffocation or positional asphyxiation,” according to the report.

Although no deaths, thankfully, have been reported, Eddie Bauer and the CPSC have received ten reports of “infants rolling to one side, including 6 reports of infants who had their faces pressed against the side or the bottom of the bassinet,” according to the report. “One child reportedly was turning purple and was out of breath when discovered.”

Please note that the recall involves all units with model No. 05046, as well as all units with model No. 05044 which were manufactured  prior to December 1, 2008.
