The Land of Nod Recalls Children's Canopies Due to Entrapment and Strangulation Hazards

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.


Manufacturer: The Land of Nod, of Northbrook, Ill.
