Fisher-Price recalls nearly 5 million sleepers linked to 30 baby deaths

A warning was issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission about the Fisher Price Rock ‘N Play seat after reports of infant deaths

"The AAP advises against using vehicle seats, strollers or other devices for sleep", the AAP said, "because of the risk that a baby could roll or turn into an unsafe position and be incapable of moving, leading to suffocation or strangulation".

The recall covers about 4.7 million of the sleepers, which cost between $40 and $149.

Last week, the CPSC had only cited reports of 10 fatalities - of babies 3 months or older - but a Consumer Reports analysis linked the popular sleeper to 32 infant deaths, between 2011 and 2018.

Parents will be given a full refund or voucher once contacting Fisher-Price.

The CPSC previously recommended consumers stop using the product by three months of age, or as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities.

Consumers are advised to contact Fisher-Price online or by calling 866-812-6518 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST Monday through Friday. The AAP rarely issues warnings about child products or pushes for recalls.

"This product is deadly and should be recalled immediately", said AAP President Dr. Kyle Yasuda, MD, FAAP, in his organization's statement.

Evan Overton, the infant's mother, said they haven't filed suit but are negotiating with Fisher-Price. The American Academy of Pediatrics called for the recall and called on parents to stop using the sleepers. It does not meet the AAP's recommendations for a safe sleep environment for any baby.

In addition, Cowles said that while she is pleased the product is now off the market, "it took children dying to get this product off the market".

"The CPSC is aware of 10 infant deaths in the Rock 'n Play that have occurred since 2015, after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side, while unrestrained". Tragically, that is not the case.

"Fisher-Price and Mattel, their parent company, we are in negotiations to discuss kind of what we expect from talking about and speaking out on the dangers of this chair", Evan Overton said. The sleepers, a soft cradle that vibrates, are used to put babies to sleep.

Consumer advocates say the recall has too many restrictions and could cause confusion.
