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

Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play sleepers recalled

After dozens of infant deaths, Fisher-Price is recalling its Rock "N" Play infant sleepers. In these instances, infants who were not in restraints rolled over in the Rock 'n Play.

This undated photo provided by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission shows the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper.

The CPSC warns consumers should stop using the "Rock n' Play Sleepers" immediately and return them to Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher.

TODAY'S TMJ4 reached out to the Consumer Product Safety Commission on Friday, asking why the voluntary recall was decided.

Officials originally said there were 10 reports of infant deaths since 2015, all of whom were 3 months or older. The AAP rarely issues warnings about child products or pushes for recalls.

Between 2011 and 2018, 32 babies have died, "included babies even younger than the 3-month threshold cited in the initial warning, which is alarming", the AAP noted in its release.

The recall did not say what caused the infants' deaths. In an article this week, Consumer Reports found that some of the infants died from suffocation.

Patty Davis, a spokeswoman with CPSC, had said the commission was aware of the report of additional fatalities and were looking into those deaths.

"Infants should always sleep on their back, on a separate, flat and firm sleep surface without any bumpers or bedding", Rachel Moon, MD, FAAP, said in a statement.

"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".
