Fisher-Price is recalling its Rock 'n Play Sleepers after multiple reports of infant deaths.
"Since the 2009 product introduction, over 30 infant fatalities have occurred in Rock 'n Play Sleepers", it said.
"Putting safety first, in partnership with the CPSC, Fisher-Price issued a voluntary recall of our Rock 'n Play Sleepers", Fisher-Price tweeted.
The recall comes one week after Fisher-Price and the CPSC issued a statement alerting parents and families to stop using the baby sleeper improperly due to at least 10 deaths that occurred after infants rolled over in the product.
The CPSC previously recommended consumers stop using the product by three months of age, or as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities. The Rock 'n Play Sleeper and others like it increase the risk of suffocation and strangulation.
This warning, however, did not name Fisher Price. In its initial statement, Fisher-Price said 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 Manufacturing Association (JPMA)". In these instances, infants who were not in restraints rolled over in the Rock 'n Play. The product was manufactured in China. "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".
"This product is risky and I urge parents and caregivers to stop using it right away", said Ben Hoffman, M.D., chairperson of AAP's Council on Injury, Violence, and Poison Prevention Executive Committee.
Chuck Scothon, general manager at Fisher-Price, said the company considered the recall the "best course of action" and will continue to stand by the safety of all its products.
The CPSC said parents should never add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys or other items to places where babies sleep - cribs, bassinets, play pens or inclined sleepers.
