Fisher-Price Rock n' Play recall today after reports of infant deaths

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

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says that anyone who bought any models of the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play sleeper should stop using it right away and contact Fisher-Price for a refund.

Consumers should stop using the product immediately.

"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. "A warning issued by the CPSC and Fisher-Price on April 5 did not go far enough to ensure safety and protect infants". All 10 infants were 3 months or older.

The CPSC has estimated the recall affects about 4.7m products. It does not meet the AAP's recommendations for a safe sleep environment for any baby.

Fisher-Price had previously issued a warning about the product last week, saying that 10 babies had died while using it since 2015. Tragically, that is not the case.

The move comes just a few days after the American Academy of Pediatrics, a professional organization of pediatricians known by the acronym AAP, called on the CPSC to recall the products, citing an analysis from Consumer Reports magazine connecting it to 32 sleep-related infant deaths. "Stores should remove the "Rock 'N Play Sleeper" from their shelves". Over 30 fatalities have been reported since the product was introduced in 2009.

"The AAP advises against using auto 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". This is due to infants rolling over while unrestrained.

The Rock "n Play is not on Toys R Us" Canadian website, is listed on Walmart's Canadian website but is not available to purchase, and is available on Amazon and Best Buy's Canadian websites.

Some studies have suggested that babies that sleeping on their backs have a lower chance of dying from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
