What’s the Problem?
The deaths, which occurred between April 2019 and February 2020, included a 4-month old from Missouri, a 2-month old from Nevada, a 2-month old from Michigan and an 11-week old from Colorado.
“These types of incidents are heart-breaking,” said Acting CPSC Chairman Robert Adler. “Loving parents put their babies in these products never expecting a tragedy. Inclined products, such as gliders, soothers, rockers and swings are not safe for infant sleep, due to the risk of suffocation.”
This CPSC Recall affects Fisher Price 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers models CHP56, CHP55 and CBT81. The soothers were sold online and at juvenile product stores and mass merchandisers nationwide. The 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers were sold from January 2014 through December 2020, for about $108. The 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders were sold from November 2018 through May 2021, for about $125.
The soothers have 2 use modes: A powered glider seat and an infant rocker. In both modes, the soother can move in a head-to-toe or side-to-side motion. The model number is located on the underside of the base.
Consumers who purchased a recalled Rock n Glide Soother should stop using it immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a refund.
CPSC recommends that babies sleep on a firm, flat surface in a crib, bassinet or play yard. “Parents and caregivers should never add blankets, pillows or other items to an infant’s sleeping environment,” the agency said. “Babies should always be placed to sleep on their backs.”
This recall began on June 3, 2021.
