Deaths prompt warning of Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play units

Fisher-Price is recalling its Rock 'n Play Sleepers after multiple reports of infant deaths.

Since the 2009 product introduction, over 30 infant deaths have been reported using Rock 'n Plays. This is due to infants rolling over while unrestrained.

Fisher-Price is encouraging everyone to stop using the Rock 'n Plays now.

The company is offering refunds to those who have purchased the sleepers. To contact Fisher-Price, click here .

TODAY’S TMJ4 reached out to the Consumer Product Safety Commission on Friday, asking why the voluntary recall was decided.

A spokesperson told us, “Fisher-Price came forward to do this expedited recall for the safety of consumers.”

The representative told us the federal agency has been investigating Rock 'n Play Sleepers for years and the recent Consumer Reports investigation had nothing to do with this recall decision.
