Fisher-Price issues warning about Rock ‘N Play after reports of infant roll over death

News

(WIAT) — The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price are warning consumers about the Fisher-Price Rock ‘N Play due to reports of death when infants roll over in the product. 

Infants typically begin rollover behaviors at three months, according to medical literature. Officials are aware of 10 infant deaths in the Rock ‘N Play that have occurred since 2015 after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side, while unrestrained.

All 10 infants were 3 months or older.

Because deaths continue to occur, CPSC is recommending consumers stop using the product by three months of age, or as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities.

CPSC and Fisher-Price remind consumers to create a safe sleep environment for infants, whether using 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.
