March 3, 2011: AOSOM Recalls Wooden Playpens
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with AOSOM LLC, of Tualatin, Oregon, have recalled about 5,000 wooden playpens. The wooden playpen can break, split, and/or crack at points where screws and other hardware are located. Small, broken wood pieces and hardware from the playpen can pose a risk of choking and laceration hazards to children. In addition, an unstable playpen can fall over onto a child, posing an entrapment hazard.
AOSOM has received 69 reports of the wooden playpens breaking, splitting, and/or cracking including one report of a child mouthing a piece of the broken wood and three reports of children found with a broken piece of wood and/or screw in their hand. The objects were removed without injury.
