Recall Reminder for Fisher-Price Sleeper After 100 Deaths
by BoroPark24 Staff
After approximately 70 more deaths occurred in the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleepers since the first recall, yesterday, the company re-announced the recall of 4.7 million sleepers.
Fisher-Price first announced the recall on April 12, 2019.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission wrote, "At the time the original recall was announced, over 30 fatalities were reported to have occurred in the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained, or under other circumstances. Since the recall, approximately 70 additional fatalities have been reported, which includes at least eight fatalities that were reported to have occurred after the initial recall announcement."
The total death count is currently approximately 100 deaths. However, Fisher-Price notes that it has been unable to confirm the circumstances of the incidents or that the product was a Rock ‘n Play Sleeper in some of the reports.
The recalled sleeper product has been sold nationwide since 2009 at major stores like Target and Walmart and online retailers like Amazon.
Any consumers that have the sleeper are advised to stop using it immediately. Also, remember that it is illegal to sell or distribute recalled products.
