Less than two weeks after Fisher-Price recalled its popular Rock & # 39; Play Play sleepers, two class action cases have been filed against Fisher-Price and its parent company, Mattel.
12. April Recall 4.7 Million Rock & # 39; n Play sleepers came a week after the US Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price issued a security warning that 10 babies died. Days after April 5, the consumer survey was linked to the product of over 30 infant deaths since 2009.
The first suit filed on April 1
"This recall was too late to save the lives of more than 30 infants and to avoid the damage of many other infants caused by the Rock & nbsp; Play," the trial said. "The Rock & nbsp; Play causes death or damage to infants because the defective design allows them to move into positions where they cannot breathe.

Laws claim that marketing of Rock & # 39; n Play "was dangerously false and deceptive."  In both cases, families are seeking indefinite injuries and want to create two classes of potential claimants: one for New York and the other nationwide.
