Three Companies Have Now Recalled Infant Sleepers due to Fatality Risk
Three companies have now recalled inclined infant sleepers due to infant fatalities that have occurred in the 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.
Kids II have recalled 694,000 Rocking Sleepers after the company received reports of five infant fatalities that occurred in the sleeper since 2012. The deaths occurred due to infants rolling from their back to stomach while unrestrained or due to other circumstances.
The latest recall was issued from the Disney and Eddie Bauer brand infant sleepers. While no deaths have occurred in the sleepers, out of precaution, the company decided to recall the inclined sleepers.
Consumers should immediately stop using the sleepers and contact the manufacturer for a refund or voucher.
