January 9, 2023 — After more than 100 babies suffocated to death, Fisher-Price and Kids2 re-announced recalls for millions of Rock ‘n Play Sleepers and Kids2 Rocking Sleepers.
Around 32 baby deaths were reported when Fisher-Price recalled 5.7 million Rock ‘n Play Sleepers in April 2019. Since the recall, around 100 reports of death have been linked to the Rock ‘n Play, including 8 deaths that occurred after the recall, according to a new warning issued by Fisher-Price.
Kids2 also re-announced a recall for about 694,000 Kids2 Rocking Sleepers, which were linked to 11 deaths in April 2019. Since the recall, another 4 babies have tragically suffocated to death.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), inclined sleepers and baby rockers are dangerous because infants can roll over from their back to their stomach, or twist onto their side, and suffocate in minutes when their face gets trapped against the fabric.
CPSC Chairman Alexander Hoehn-Saric issued the following statement:
“We are issuing this announcement because, despite their removal from the marketplace and a prohibition on their sale, babies continue to die in these products. … Unfortunately, today’s announcement highlights the fact that these products are still in too many homes, and babies continue to be put at risk.”
