Parents warned about Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play after 10 infant deaths

Parents warned about Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play after 10 infant deaths

According to a release from the CPSC, infants typically begin to roll over at around three months.

The deaths occurred when the infants rolled over in the device while unrestrained.

Because deaths are still happening, the CPSC and Fisher Price are recommending that the Rock 'N Play stop being used by three months of age, or as soon as the infant can rollover.

Previously, Fisher-Price warned consumers to discontinue the product due to the possible dangers of infants rolling over and falling. It's also important to use the product's three-point harness restraint.

Instead, he said he'll give Mexico a "one-year warning" to curb the flow of drugs into the U.S. At another point, he said , "If the drugs don't stop, we'll tariff the cars".

Fisher-Price has a long, proud tradition of prioritizing safety as the cornerstone of our mission.

The commission and Fisher-Price issued a warning Friday about the Rock 'n Play sleeper, citing reports of 10 infant deaths since 2015.

'We are there with you from the moment you bring your child home and take our responsibility for product safety very seriously'.

The alert concludes with a reminder to create a safe sleep environment for babies, wherever they sleep - whether 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 meets all applicable safety standards, including those of the global standards organization, known as ASTM worldwide, and is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA).
