Play Yard and Crib Recall Information
For Safe Sleeping and Playing

It is critically important to know if there has been a play yard or crib recall. Tragically, these cribs and playpens aren't just potential hazards, they have proven to be deadly.

During my research-gathering for this article, I was shocked to discover that I was using a playpen that had caused the death of several infants.

Playpens are often handed down (where I got mine) or purchased second-hand at garage sales. If I hadn't researched this page, I would never have known that my playpen was unsafe.

For this reason, you will find these playpen and crib recall reports go back as far as 10 years ago.

Babies are still dying from using these old products. Use the free recall reports I've compiled to make sure you don't have them.

Special Note! I update all the recall reports on this website EVERY WEEK. If you would like to be notified of all the latest reports, sign up for my monthly newsletter, The Merry Mother for a specific monthly list.

All the Recall Reports are FREE...

It takes a quite a bit of time for me to put all these reports together. That's time away from my precious family. I've struggled for years to determine whether I should charge for these reports to cover the time and effort involve in updating them. Unfortunately, when I come across those items marked "fatal" my heart is crushed with sadness and I realize (again) that these reports should be as available as possible to save as many babies as possible.

Would you consider giving a donation in return for the reports you will be using?

You receive the blessing of getting solid information and photos of any items that could be dangerous in your home. I receive the blessing of being able to help support my family through this site.

The amount is irrelevant to me. I just appreciate your willingness to help out. Thank you!

Not having family in the area, we travel a lot. I depend on my playpen to keep my baby safe when we are away from home.

Can you imagine my horror when I discovered (while doing this research) that our playpen, the Happy Cabana, had been recalled after causing the deaths of three infants? I'm so thankful that I didn't find out the hard way.
