another report of a death, CPSC and Baby Trend, Inc. of Ontario, Calif.
are reminding consumers to search for recalled Home and Roam and Baby
Express portable cribs/play yards. These cribs/play yards can collapse
and entrap an infant. In June 2001, an 8-month old baby boy in Seattle,
Wash. strangled when his neck was caught in the V-shape created by the
collapsed sides of a Home and Roam play yard. There have been four other
deaths and three reports of babies found not breathing (who were
revived) associated with these products.
The instructions for getting a free replacement can be found in CPSC's
February 2001 re-announcement of the Baby Trend play yard recall.
