After reports of infant deaths, nearly 5 million Fisher-Price Rock ’n Play Sleepers are recalled
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) officially recalled 4.7 million Fisher-Price "Rock 'n Play Sleepers" Tuesday after reports of at least 30 infant deaths related to using the product.
In a statementFriday, Fisher-Price said that it stood by the safety of its products and said it issued the recall "due to reported incidents in which the product was used contrary to the safety warnings and instructions".
The CPSC and Fisher-Price had issued the warning last week that the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play can be risky for children who have exhibited the ability to roll over.
The deaths happened when the "infants rolled over while unrestrained" or during "other circumstances", the agency said, without elaborating.

Lockheed Martin built the satellite, along with a second one, for Arabsat as part of a batch of contracts worth $650 million. When the rocket flew a year ago , its two side boosters made synchronized landings on side-by-side ground pads in Florida.
Last week the CPSC warned people not to use the sleepers for infants older than three months old, since they are more likely to roll over.
The AAP does not recommend any sleeping products for infants or any products that require restraining a baby.
Fisher-Price recalled almost five million infant sleepers on Friday, after more than 30 babies died in them over a 10-year period. "All other inclined sleepers should be investigated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission".
In May 2018, the CPSC issued a warning to parents indicating they were "aware of infant deaths associated with inclined sleep products", specifically, "bassinet-like products with an inclined back to elevate the baby's head and torso".
The company is offering refunds to those who have purchased the sleepers.
