Officials issue warning on Fisher-Price baby rocker amid reports of deaths

Posted: Updated:

Government officials and the Fisher-Price company have issued a warning about the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play amid reports of infant deaths.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says 10 infants have died since 2015 after the babies rolled from their backs on to their stomachs or sides while unrestrained in the Rock ‘n Play. The infants were all 3 months old or older.

Officials say that parents who use the Rock ‘n Play should stop using it after their children reach 3 months or as soon as they exhibit “rollover capabilities.” The CPSC says it has previously warned consumers to use restraints in infant inclined-sleep products.

According to a release by CPSC, Fisher-Price warns consumers to stop using the Rock ‘n Play when their infants are capable of rolling over.

More information can be found on the CPSC website.
