It’s pretty rare to see product recall announced twice, but in the case of the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, there’s still a very real danger to babies.
In the nearly four years since Fisher-Price and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the first recall, eight more infants have died in the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers. The first recall took place after more than 30 deaths occurred.
Here’s what you need to know about the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers recall, including what the problem is, what to do with your product, and how to get a refund.
The Rock ‘n Play Sleepers pose an ongoing threat to babies.
Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, manufactured by Fisher-Price, have been the subject of a recall since April 12, 2019. All models of the sleepers were affected, with about 4.7 million units sold nationwide from September 2009 to April 2019. The recall was extended on Jan. 9, 2023, after a number of additional fatalities were reported.
The recall was prompted by the incidents of infants rolling from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained or under other circumstances, resulting in over 100 reported deaths. Fisher-Price acknowledged the incidents but noted that in some cases, they were unable to confirm the circumstances or that the product was indeed a Rock ‘n Play Sleeper.
Consumers are advised to stop using the sleepers immediately.
If you have one of these items, stop using it immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher. You can visit Fisher-Price’s contact page online or call them at 1-800-432-5437 Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET. And don’t try to sell them or give them away; it’s illegal to sell or distribute recalled products. The sleepers were sold at major stores such as Walmart, Target, and online at Amazon for prices ranging from $40 to $149.
