Eddie Bauer Soothe and Sway Play Yard RECALL
Every night DH put DD in her EB Play Yard Bassinet to sleep until I come to bed. I do my nightly chores of Diaper Washing, Bottle Washing, Dishes, etc. 2 night ago I heard this weird noise so I went in to check.
The bassinet has a rocking capability, and to make it stop rocking it attaches to the sides of the play yard itself. Well, the bassinet was tilted to the side and DD was on her side up against the corner with her face smooshed in and she couldn't get out because it was tilted and she can't push herself uphill!
I freaked out! Yesterday I spent all day looking for the stupid instruction book thinking I did something wrong and after I couldn't find it I decided to call EB and see if they could help. I gave the lady my product # and manu fac date and she told me THEY HAD BEEN RECALLED BECAUSE BABIES ARE BEING WEDGED IN THE CORNER LIKE DD WAS! I registered this item and I haven't even received anything in the mail about the recall! I don't know if I'm supposed to post this, but here goes...
Here it is right off their website:
Name of product: Eddie Bauer Soothe & Sway Play Yards
Units: About 71,000 in the United States and about 5,600 in Canada

Hazard: The play yardís rocking bassinet attachment can tilt even when secured by straps in the non-rocking mode or can stay tilted without returning to a level sleeping surface while in the rocking mode, causing an infant to roll to the corner or side of the bassinet. The infant can then become wedged in the corner or pressed against the side or bottom of the bassinet, posing a risk of suffocation or positional asphyxiation.
Incidents/Injuries: The firm and CPSC have received 10 reports of infants rolling to one side, including 6 that had their faces pressed against the side or the bottom of the bassinet. One child reportedly was turning purple and was out of breath when discovered. No injuries have been reported.
