Recall

4/13/2019
 
Fisher-Price has recalled all Rock 'n Play sleepers!!!! The providers at All Star have asked families to stop using any Rock 'n Play effective immediately.
 
Fisher-Price has recalled 4.7 million Rock 'n Play infant sleepers following reports of infant deaths.
 
"I am thrilled that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price took the advice of the American Academy of Pediatrics and issued a recall of the Rock 'n Play Sleeper," said Ben Hoffman, M.D., FAAP, chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Council on Injury, Violence and Poison Prevention. "This product is dangerous and I urge parents and caregivers to stop using it right away."
 
The recall comes on the heels of an investigation by Consumer Reports that found 32 infants had died while using the sleeper since 2011. Some of the infants rolled over while unrestrained and some were unable to breathe due to their position.
 
Citing that report, the AAP called for the CPSC to pull the product from shelves and urged parents to stop using it.
 
To request a refund for the Rock 'n Play, visit http://bit.ly/RockNPlayRecall or call the company at 866-812-6518. Those who have owned the Rock 'n Play for 6 months or less will receive a cash refund while those who have owned them longer will receive a voucher for a new Fisher-Price product.
 
The AAP and All Star Pediatrics does not recommend letting infants sleep in inclined products like the Rock 'n Play that require restraining a baby.

All Star Pediatrics and AAP policy calls for infants to sleep on their back, on a separate, flat and firm sleep surface without any bumpers, bedding or stuffed toys.
