Fisher-Price is warning parents with the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play of several reports of infant deaths related to using the product.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says at least 10 infants died after rolling from their back to their stomach, or side, while unrestrained in the rocker. All of the infants were three months or older.
Because deaths continue to occur, CPSC is recommending consumers stop use of the product by three months of age, or as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities. CPSC has previously warned consumers to use restraints in infant inclined sleep products.
Fisher-Price warns consumers to stop using the product when infants can roll over, but the reported deaths show that some consumers are still using the product when infants are capable of rolling and without using the three point harness restraint.
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.
