Once that is done, consumers can fill out an online form with photo proof of the cut cords to apply for a $75 store credit.

Further information about the products are available on the government listing .

They warn that "if a child is left unattended in the bassinet or playard portion of the playard while the change table accessory is installed, contrary to the manufacturer instructions, a child could attempt to lift the change table accessory posing a potential risk of injury or death due to entrapment."
