Million Fisher-Price Rock ‘N Play Sleepers Recalled After Infant Deaths

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recalling all models of Fisher-Price Rock N' Play sleepers after it was linked to over 30 infant deaths.

It said the recall involves all Rock 'n Play Sleepers - about 4.7 million products.

"However, due to reported incidents in which the product was used contrary to the safety warnings and instructions, we have made a decision to conduct a voluntary recall of the Rock 'n Play Sleeper in partnership with the Consumer Product Safety Commission", Fisher Price-owner Mattel Inc said.

Officials say parents and caretakers should stop using the product immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a refund.

As a result, both the USPSC and Fisher-Price warned parents to stop using the rocking crib without restraints once their children were more than three months old. "A warning issued by the CPSC and Fisher-Price on April 5 did not go far enough to ensure safety and protect infants". At least 32 babies are reported to have died in them after rolling over. "While this recall is specific to the Rock "n Play, there are other inclined and padded sleeping products on the market that can put infants" safety at risk".

"This product is deadly and should be recalled immediately", Dr. Kyle Yasuda, the head president of the AAP, said in a press release.

"We can not put any more children's lives at risk by keeping these risky products on the shelves", Rachel Moon, MD, FAAP, chair of the AAP Task Force on SIDS, said earlier in the week.

In May 2018, the CPSC issued a warning to parents indicating they were "aware of infant deaths associated with inclined sleep products", specifically, "bassinet-like products with an inclined back to elevate the baby's head and torso".

"When parents purchase a product for their baby or child, many assume that if it's being sold in a store, it must be safe to use. Infants should always sleep on their back, on a separate, flat and firm sleep surface without any bumpers or bedding".
