Fisher-Price Recalls 4.7 Million Rock n’ Play Sleepers

The well-known children’s manufacturer, Fisher-Price, has recalled 4.7 million of their popular Rock n’ Play sleepers. The recall involves all models

Since 2009, there have been over 30 infant deaths that have occurred in the sleeper due to rolling over while unrestrained or other circumstances.

The Rock n’ Play is an inclined sleeping product with soothing vibrations.  It is also equipped with a strap.

The recall was issued a week after Fisher-Price and the government agency issued a warning advising consumers to stop using the sleeper by three months “or as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities.”

Fisher-Price says consumers should immediately stop using the sleeper and contact them for a refund or voucher.

Recovering compensation after an injury from a defective product

It is a manufacturer’s responsibility to make sure their products are safe for consumers.  If someone is injured due to a defective product, a product liability claim may exist.  A claim may be pursued to pay for damages caused by the defective product such as medical bills, missed time from work and pain and suffering. 

If you or someone you know has been seriously injured by a defective product, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney to review your rights.  Call 412-661-1400 to schedule a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer in Pittsburgh at Berger and Green today.
