Baby Sleeper Recall
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is once again warning parents and caregivers not to use any models of Fisher-Price’s Rock ‘n Play sleepers, a type of chair used to soothe and rock infants to sleep.
The safety agency released the repeat announcement Monday, nearly three years after the Rock ‘n Play sleepers were first recalled in April 2019.
The recall applies to approximately 4.7 million sleeper products, many of which were sold between 2009 and 2019 at major retailers such as Target and Walmart and online on e-commerce sites like Amazon.
The sleepers were recalled in 2019 after 30 children were reported to have died after they were placed in a Rock ‘n Play sleeper and “rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.” Since the initial announcement, there have been reports of at least 70 more children who have died in connection to the sleeper, according to the CPSC.
Both recall announcements add, “Fisher-Price notes that in some of the reports, it has been unable to confirm the circumstances of the incidents or that the product was a Rock ‘n Play Sleeper.”
Fisher-Price immediately stopped sales of the sleeper following the recall, and worked to remove the product from the market. More information can be found here.
