- Graco: New Safety Instructions to Prevent Injuries with Portable Play Yards with Raised Changing Tables
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Exton, Pa., is providing new instructions for about 538,000 “Pack ‘n Play” portable play yards with raised changing tables. When children are placed in these portable play yards when the changing table is still in place, they can crawl under and lift the table up. If this occurs, a child’s head and neck can become trapped between the changing table and the play yard rail, causing a strangulation hazard. The recall is designed to warn consumers of this hazard, and to provide warning labels to affix to the changing tables.
