Tualatin, OR—About 5,000 wooden playpens were voluntarily recalled by AOSOM LLC and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for injury hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on March 3, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the wooden playpen can break, spilt and/or crack at mounts where screws and other hardware are located.
