Product Details

Product name Child Enclosures
Description These expandable wooden enclosures were first recalled in May 1986. The recalled enclosures were manufactured by Memline Corporation (under the name Nu-Line Industries); WBI, Inc., (formerly Worldsbest Industries, Inc.); Paris Manufacturing Corporation; North States Industries; Mapes Industries, Inc.; and Creative Playthings (enclosures were last sold by the firm in 1974 and is not affiliated with Creative playthings, Ltd., of Framingham, Massachusetts). 
Problem Toddlers between 10 and 24 months of age are at the greatest risk of injury or death because they can climb on the enclosure, and may slip and catch their head or neck in the V-shaped openings at the top of the enclosure. They may also attempt to crawl through and become entrapped in the diamond-shaped openings in the middle of the enclosure. The angles of the V-shaped openings are narrow enough to entrap the head or neck of a child resulting in injury or death.
