Models included in this recall are 05025, 05026, 05037, 05088 and 05350. The model number is printed on a sticker on one of the support legs underneath the play yard. “Safety 1st” or “Eddie Bauer” are printed near the bottom of the fabric sides of the play yards..

The strollers were sold at Babies “R” Us, Kmart, Sears, Target and Walmart from January 2007 through October 2009 for between $100 and $130. The product was made in China.

    This type of suffocation hazard isn't very obvious to young parents or to babysitting grandparents for that matter. I've not read anything about this so thanks for posting about the hazard.
