Warning Issued About Fisher-Price Rock 'N Play Following Deaths

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says infants older than 3 months, or those who will roll over, should not utilize Fisher-Price Rock'n Plays because of multiple deaths.

A previous warning from Fisher-Price said that babies over three months old that were not buckled into the sleeper had rolled over and fallen out of it to their deaths.

The USPSC did not reveal the exact causes of the babies' deaths, but said they died after rolling from their stomachs to the backs or sides unrestrained in the sleeper.

'A child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy, ' the company said in a statement.

Medical experts say the product poses a risk because infants typically begin to roll over at three months. "Fisher-Price and every one of our employees take the responsibility of being part of your family seriously, and we are committed to earning that trust every day".

A spokesperson for the commission, Patty Davis, revealed that the most recent death was reported last month.

The Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play is an inclined seat created to help babies sleep.

The CPSC said it has previously warned consumers to use restraints in infant-inclined sleep products.

But he added that the product meets all "applicable safety standards".

The report also points out that use of the sleepers goes against the guidelines for safe sleeping recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
