Update: 100 Infant Deaths Linked to Rock’n Play Sleeper
January 9, 2023 – 4.7 million Fisher-Price sleepers are being recalled again by Fisher-Price after they were linked to more than 100 infants’ deaths.
CPSC said the recall affects all Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, which were originally recalled in April 2019 after reports of more than 30 infants dying. Since the initial recall, more than 70 additional deaths have been reported, including 8 that occurred after the recall, CPSC said.
The problem is that babies can roll from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained in the Rock’n Play Sleeper, or under other circumstances. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) called the product “dangerous” after a Consumer Reports investigation linked it to at least 32 infant deaths since 2011.
The recalled infant sleepers were sold online and at major stores nationwide including Walmart and Target from September 2009 to April 2019. CPSC warned that it is illegal to sell or distribute the recalled Rock’n Play Sleepers.
The babies who died — all of which were 3 months or older — rolled from their backs to their stomachs or side when the Fisher-Price sleeper rolled over, CPSC said. The agency did not elaborate specifically on what caused the deaths.
Fisher-Price Sleeper Recall Information
No official recall for the Fisher-Price Rock n Play Sleeper has yet been ordered. CPSC is warning consumers to stop using the sleeper if their babies are 3 months old or “as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities.” Davis said the agency is investigating the Rock n Play.
‘”If it turns out that it needs to be recalled, we will move forward with that,” Davis told CNN.
Fisher-Price had previously warned consumers to stop using the Rock n Play Sleeper when infants have the ability to roll over and possibly fall.
“[T]he reported deaths show that some consumers are still using the product when infants are capable of rolling and without using the three point harness restraint,” the warning said.
