Kolcraft Playpen Recall

Knoxville (WVLT) -- Kolcraft Enterprises is recalling 425,000 play-pens, following the death of a 10 month-old baby.

The recall involves 12 models of Play Yard brand playpens, all with a raised changing table.

The consumer product safety commission says a restraint strap beneath the table poses a strangulation hazard.

One model also has a raised cradle that poses a risk of suffocation if a child rolls and gets trapped.

The playpens were sold nationwide between January 2001 and this month.

You're urged to remove the table and cradle before placing a child inside.
