Fisher-Price Rock 'N Plays recalled due to infant deaths

Fisher-Price Rock 'N Plays recalled due to 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.

Almost 5 million Fisher Price baby sleepers are being urgently recalled after at least 30 babies died over a 10 year period.

Since 2009, when the product was introduced, more than 30 infant deaths have been reported while babies were wearing Rock 'n Play sleepers.

Meanwhile, Fisher-Price and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said the deaths occurred after infants rolled over from their backs to their stomachs or sides while unrestrained, but did not specify how they died.

The news comes after the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) urged the product's recall earlier this week, labelling the sleeper "deadly".

The CPSC and Fisher-Price had issued the warning last week that the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play can be risky for children who have exhibited the ability to roll over.

The recall is thought to cover about 4.7m sleepers, which were sold for between $40 and $149 over the past ten years.

A previous warning from Fisher-Price said that older babies that were not buckled into the sleeper had rolled over, fallen out of it and been killed.

"With these actions, we want parents around the world to know that safety will always be a cornerstone of our mission, that we are committed to these values, and will continue to prioritize the health, safety and well-being of the infants and preschoolers who utilize our products", Scothon said.

The product is advertised as a place for infants to nap or sleep and includes a vibration setting for comfort. "All other inclined sleepers should be investigated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission". At the time, the commission recommended parents stop using the seat by the time children reach the age of three months, which is typically when babies start rolling over.

Evan Overton, the infant's mother, said they haven't filed suit but are negotiating with Fisher-Price. It called for the immediate recall of the sleeper, citing the infant deaths.
