NHTSA said they could potentially erupt into fire if rear-ended, .and may have caused more than 50 deaths. Bad week for Jeep.
It's also a bad time for Kolcraft. In March, Kolcraft had to pay a $400,000 dollar fine, for "knowingly failing to report to the CPSC immediately, as required by federal law, a defect in their play yards."

At that point, one MILLION play yards had to be recalled.

On the double, it was because their were reports of the front wheel assembly breaking
