About one million portable play yards are being recalled following complaints of collapsing sides and reports of 21 injuries to young children.The Consumer Products Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of the play yards made by Kolcraft. The yards are sold under the brand names, Kolcraft, Carter's, Sesame Street, Jeep, Contours, Care Bear and, Eric Carle play yards.

Safety experts say the play yard's side rails can fail to latch, and when a child pushes against the rail, it can unlatch unexpectedly, posing a fall hazard.

The model numbers are listed on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Web site.
