Update: This device has been recalled. Discontinue use immediately!
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price issued a consumer warning for all models of the Rock ‘n Play sleeper. The CPSC is aware of 10 infant deaths that have occurred in the Rock ‘n Play since 2015. All 10 infants were at least 3 months or older, and rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained. The CPSC and Fisher-Price warn consumers to stop use of the product by three months of age, or as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities.
According to the CPSC, “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.”
In a joint statement, the CPSC and Fisher-Price remind consumers “to create a safe sleep environment for infants, whether using a crib, bassinet, play yard, or inclined sleeper: never add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys, or other items to the environment and always place infants to sleep on their backs.”
The Rock ‘n Play sleeper is sold in a variety of colors and styles through many retailers. No recall is issued at this time.
