Fisher-Price recalls sleepers after more than 30 babies died

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

Fisher-Price has issued a recall for all Rock 'n Play Sleepers following reports of deaths when infants roll over.

Last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a warning about the product, but it didn't say it was being recalled.

"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.

Those who have previously purchased the product should reach out to Fisher-Price for a refund of a voucher.

The deaths are believed to have occurred when the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side, while unrestrained, according to the release.

The voluntary recall comes a week after Fisher-Price and CPSC issued a safety warning on the sleepers.

"Fisher-Price and every one of our employees take the responsibility of being part of your family seriously, and we are committed to earning that trust every day", it said.

The AAP does not recommend any sleeping products for infants or any products that require restraining a baby.

All models of Fisher-Price's Rock 'n Play sleepers have been recalled after infant deaths were reported. Tragically, that is not the case.

WHNT News 19 shared the CPSC's warning about the sleepers in early April.

Fisher-Price has recalled approximately 4.7 million Rock 'n Play sleepers. "All other inclined sleepers should be investigated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission". The company said that children older than 3 months who have learned how to roll over should not use the "Rock 'N Play". In its initial statement, Fisher-Price said the product "meets all applicable safety standards, including those of the worldwide standards organization, known as ASTM global, and is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association (JPMA)".
