The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and five retailers are announcing a voluntary recall to provide refunds to consumers who own crib tents and play yard tents made by Tots in Mind, Inc.
Crib tents are mesh tents that fit over the tops of cribs to keep climbers in. They have poles that keep them erect and you attach the tent with Velcro to the crib rails. They zip open at the top to lift the child in and out.

- Portable Playard Tent Plus Cabana Kit
