Fisher-Price recalled about 4.7 million infant sleepers on Friday after more than 30 babies died in them over a 10-year period.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 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.
This recall involves all Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, which sold for between $40 and $149. The voluntary recall comes a week after Fisher-Price and CPSC issued a safety warning on the sleepers.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher.
Since the 2009 product introduction, over 30 infant fatalities have occurred in Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.
“While we continue to stand by the safety of all of our products, given the reported incidents in which the product was used contrary to safety warnings and instructions, we’ve decided in partnership with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), that this voluntary recall is the best course of action,” Fisher-Price said in a statement Friday.
