Fisher-Price Reminds Consumers of 2019 Recall of Rock ‘n Play Sleepers After Multiple Deaths

New York

Fisher-Price has announced its 2019 recall of Rock ‘n Play Sleepers on Monday after at least eight infant deaths occurred following the initial recall, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

“On April 12, 2019, at the time the original recall was announced, over 30 fatalities were reported to have occurred in Rock ‘n Play Sleepers after the infants rolled from their backs to their stomachs or sides while unrestrained, or in other circumstances” , the commission said in a statement. “Since the recall, an additional 70 fatalities have been reported, which includes at least 8 fatalities that were reported to have occurred after the initial recall announcement.”

“Approximately 100 deaths are reported to have occurred while infants were in the products,” the CPSC indicated. “Fisher-Price notes that in any of the reports it has been unable to confirm the circumstances surrounding the incidents or that the product was a Rock ‘n Play Sleeper.”

The CPSC indicated that “consumers should stop using Rock ‘n Play immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or coupon. It is illegal to sell or distribute the recalled sleepers.”

The first recall in 2019 affected around 4.7 million sleepers. The sleepers were sold in stores such as Walmart, Target and Amazon from September 2009 to April 2019.

At the time of the initial recall, Fisher-Price General Manager Chuck Scothon said the company considered the recall the “best course of action” and would continue to stand by the safety of all its products.

“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 infants and preschoolers who use the products ours, Scothon said during the first recall.
