Fisher-Price has issued an immediate recall of all models of its Rock ‘n Play baby sleeper, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Fisher-Price has sold approximately 4.7 million of these sleepers and at many major retailers for approximately $40-$149. Consumers are being advised to stop using the product immediately and contact the company for a refund or voucher.
An investigation by Consumer Reports found that the sleepers were tied to the deaths of 32 babies. According to the report, the deaths can be traced back to the crib’s inclined design. Infant fatalities have occurred in Rock ‘n Play sleepers after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.
The Rock ‘n Play recall was followed by the recall of a similar product, the Rocking Sleeper made by Kids II. The CPSC recently announced the recall of 694,000 Rocking Sleepers after multiple reports of injuries and deaths.
The Rocking Sleepers were sold at national retailers including Walmart, Toys R Us, and Target, as well as through a number of online outlets for between $40 and $80. As with the Rock ‘n Play sleepers, consumers with Rocking Sleepers are advised to stop using the product immediately and contact the manufacturer for a refund or voucher.
This issue has been a top priority for the agency. CPSC has been investigating incidents and analyzing the data regarding how they relate to these products. In addition, the CPSC is continuing its investigation into other inclined sleep products.
