Tots in Mind play yard tent recalled after boy dies
At the same time, the CPSC is warning consumers about both crib and play yard tents after receiving 10 complaints in three years -- including the one death and another near-death. A big problem, the agency said, is parents not using the provided equipment to secure the tents. The accessories are typically used to keep more mobile youngsters from climbing out.
About 20,000 Cozy Indoor Outdoor Portable Playard Tents Plus Cabana Kits are subject to the recall. The Chinese-made tents are mesh domes supposed to be secured by a dozen plastic clips. They are sold by Walmart, Amazon.com and other retailers from January 2005-February 2010 for about $60, the CPSC said.
