Fisher-Price Issues Warning About Their Infant Sleepers After 10 Deaths Reported

1354

A national warning has just been sent out by the US Consumer Safety Commission after at least 10 deaths have been reported from using Fisher-Price’s Rock ‘n Play infant sleeper device.

They sent out a statement yesterday noting that they are “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.”

They recommend consumers stop using the product after their children turn 3 months old, or “as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities”.

Fisher-Price’s general manager Chuck Scothon issued a statement this past Friday, stating that the Rock ‘n Play meets all “applicable safety standards”, and added that “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”.
As of April 6th, the Rock ‘n Play sleepers are still being sold online.
