Fisher-Price recalls all Rock & # 39; N Play sleepers after 30 infant deaths



The US Consumer Product Safety Commission ordered the recall of all Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play models after many infant deaths while in the sleepers.

The sloped sleeper, designed to gently swing babies, has been implicated in the deaths of more than 30 infants since 2009, the commission said Friday. Babies died after returning to bed without restraint or "in other circumstances," according to the CPSC.

The commission urged consumers to immediately stop using the bunk and said that they could contact Fisher-Price to get a refund or a good purchase of the product, which costs between 40 and 149 US dollars.

After the CPSC announced the recall, Fisher-Price issued a statement Friday night saying that it was a matter of "voluntarily" reminding sleepers because of reported deaths.

Rock'n Play is designed for newborns and babies up to 25 pounds. The berth includes a seatbelt and some models have a function that automatically switches the cradle at the touch of a button.

The product recall comes a week after the CPSC issued a joint warning with Fisher-Price asking parents and caregivers to stop using it after 3 months or as soon as the baby appears to be showing " reversal behavior ".

The previous warning indicated that at least 10 babies aged at least 3 months had died in sleep since 2015. At that time, Fisher-Price was defending his product, claiming that he respected "All applicable safety standards".
