  • All models of Fisher-Price Rock N' Play sleepers recalled after infant deaths

On Friday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the official recall notice for all models of the baby sleeper on its website. "There is convincing evidence that the Rock "n Play inclined sleeper puts infants" lives at risk".

The recall affects all models of Rock 'n Play Sleepers, of which 4.7 million have been sold at major retailers in the USA for $40 to $149.

According to the recall, consumers 'should immediately stop using the product and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher'. Last week, the safety commission and Fisher-Price asked consumers to stop using the sleeper after an infant reaches three months of age, "or is capable of rolling over".

Chuck Scothon, general manager at Fisher-Price, said the company considered the recall the "best course of action" and will continue to stand by the safety of all its products.

More importantly, if they are sleeping somewhere high and without any kind of barrier around them, babies that roll over can fall.


'This product is deadly and should be recalled immediately, ' Dr. Kyle Yasuda, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said at the time.

"I urge consumers to report any incidents with inclined sleepers or other nursery products to CPSC at saferproducts.gov", she said in a video statement.

The recall covers about 4.7 million of the sleepers, which cost between $40 and $149. "We need to step up efforts to assure safety in products before they go on store shelves or into our homes".

NEW YORK (AP) - Fisher-Price recalled almost 5 million infant sleepers on Friday after more than 30 babies died in them over a 10-year period. It does not meet the AAP's recommendations for a safe sleep environment for any baby.

For more information about the recall, visit the CPSC site here. "Infants should always sleep on their back, on a separate, flat and firm sleep surface without any bumpers or bedding".
