Rock 'N Play Infant Sleepers by Fisher-Price - Product  Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada in cooperation with Fisher-Price Inc., of East Aurora, N.Y have recalled about 800,000 Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper™.

Mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper when it remains wet/moist or is infrequently cleaned, posing a risk of exposure to mold to infants sleeping in the product. The CPSC advises that mold has been associated with respiratory illnesses and other infections. Although mold is not present at the time of purchase, mold growth can occur after use of the product. .


Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold on the product. Sixteen consumers have reported that their infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after sleeping in the product.
