Fisher-Price 'Rock 'n Play Sleepers' officially recalled after infant deaths

Fisher-Price is recalling nearly 5 million infant sleepers after more than 30 babies rolled over in them and died since the product was introduced in 2009

Fisher-Price issued a recall notice for 4.7 million of its "Rock 'n Play Sleepers" after the devices were linked to the roll-over deaths of more than 30 infants since 2009, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Friday. "There is convincing evidence that the Rock "n Play inclined sleeper puts infants" lives at risk".

The representative told us the federal agency has been investigating Rock 'n Play Sleepers for years and the recent Consumer Reports investigation had nothing to do with this recall decision.

It has urged consumers to stop using the sleepers immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a refund.

A warning from the Consumer Product Safety Commission has turned into a recall.

Just last week, the CPSC and Fisher-Price issued a warning about the product, which retailed for $49 to $149 and was sold at several major retailers dating back to 2009.

"This product is deadly and should be recalled immediately", Kyle Yasuda, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said in the news release.

Hunter's pair of 3-point shots rescued the Cavaliers after a 10-point lead with 10:24 in regulation time had slipped away. It's tempting to call Virginia a team of destiny, but that would undermine what the Cavaliers accomplished this season.

More importantly, if they are sleeping somewhere high and without any kind of barrier around them, babies that roll over can fall.

The recall comes one week after Fisher-Price and the CPSC issued a statement alerting parents and families to stop using the baby sleeper improperly due to at least 10 deaths that occurred after infants rolled over in the product.

Patty Davis, a spokeswoman with CPSC, had said the commission was aware of the report of additional fatalities and were looking into those deaths.

"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.

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