The child-resistant caps can fail to function properly and enable the cap to be removed by a child with the tamper-evident seal in place, posing a risk of ingestion and poisoning. These products contain acetaminophen and diphenhydramine which are required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act to be sealed with child-resistant packaging. There have been 12 reports of children unscrewing the locked caps, including four reports of children ingesting the product. One child required medical attention.

The model number and date code can be found under the stroller seat on a white sticker. The strollers have black or silver-colored metal frames with brown, navy blue, black or white seats. “EVO” is printed on the lower back frame of the stroller. They were sold between April and December 2012.
The opening between the grab bar and seat bottom of the stroller can allow an infant’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck, posing a strangulation hazard to children when they are not harnessed.
About 1,440 4moms breeze cotton jersey playard sheets made by Thorley Industries LLC. The sheets are cream-colored, cotton jersey fabric. They were sold as an accessory to the 4moms breeze play yard. “4moms” is printed on a black tag sewn onto the sheet. Item number 4M-009-10-000101 is printed on the packaging and UPC 817980011137 is printed on the sheet’s packaging and on a white warning tag sewn onto the sheet.

The sheets are too small for the play yards. A sheet that does not properly fit the play yard poses an entrapment hazard that could lead to suffocation. No incidents have been reported.
