Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleepers
Th U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a warning in April 2018, urging parents to be aware of potential flaws with “Rock ‘n Play Sleepers” made by Fisher-Price. According to the CPSC, more than 30 infants have died in Rock ‘n Play Sleepers since 2009.
The CPSC said infants in the sleeper set would roll from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained.
Shortly after the CPSC issued its warning, Fisher-Price recalled more than 4.7 million Rock ‘n Play products.
Fisher-Price’s parent company, Mattel, said in a statement that it stands by the safety of its products and agreed to voluntarily recall the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers “due to reported incidents in which the product was used contrary to the safety warnings and instructions.”
According to an advisory on Mattel’s website, those who own a Rock ‘n Play sleeper should discontinue using it immediately. Those who contact Fisher-Price will receive a refund or voucher.
