Fisher-Price recalls sleepers after more than 30 babies died

All models of Fisher-Price Rock N' Play sleepers recalled after infant deaths

After reports of infant deaths, nearly 5 million Fisher-Price Rock ’n Play Sleepers are recalled

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Friday that toymaker Fisher-Price has voluntarily recalled all its "Rock 'n Play Sleeper" products after reports of more than 30 infant deaths.

"Fisher-Price and the CPSC knew about deaths linked to this product for years and could have taken steps to avoid this unnecessary tragedy", Consumer Reports President Marta Tellado said in the statement.

In Canada, the Rock 'n Play is classified as a "soother" rather than a "sleeper" due to Canadian regulations that do not allow the product to be used for unattended sleep, according to Fisher-Price. The agency said infants have died after rolling from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained or under other circumstances.

Assange's attorneys fear that in case of his handover to the U.S. , he may face up to 35 years in jail or capital punishment. That case could be reopened, but for some critics, the concern lies with authorities in the US.


The recall notice came days after Fisher-Price and the U.S. CPSC jointly issued an alert warning parents to stop using the sleepers when their infants displayed the capacity to roll over.

"The product meets all applicable safety standards, including those of the worldwide standards organization, known as ASTM global, and is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA)", the statement continued. The American Academy of Pediatrics called for the recall and called on parents to stop using the sleepers. "I am glad to see this product off the market and urge all parents to talk to their pediatricians about how to keep their babies safe during sleep time and any time".

The recall will impact about 4.7 million sleepers, the commission said. Tragically, that is not the case. In these instances, infants who were not in restraints rolled over in the Rock 'n Play. The Rock 'n Play Sleeper and others like it increase the risk of suffocation and strangulation.

"To truly protect the public, the CPSC should set strong rules for all infant sleep products, including mandating what medical experts already recommend: a firm, flat surface in a bare crib, bassinet, or play yard", he said. "We stand by the safety of our products", Scothon said. "There is convincing evidence that the Rock "n Play inclined sleeper puts infants" lives at risk".

Some studies have suggested that babies that sleeping on their backs have a lower chance of dying from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
