Warning Issued About Fisher-Price Rock 'N Play Following Deaths

Fisher-Price warns parents over baby deaths linked to cot More

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says infants older than 3 months, or those who can roll over, should not use Fisher-Price Rock 'n Plays because of multiple deaths.

According to a release from the CPSC, infants typically begin to roll over at around three months.

The announcement did not specify exactly how the cot had caused the infants to die.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says it previously warned consumers to use restraints in Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play sleepers, which are also sold in New Zealand. "And Consumer Reports" review found fatalities involving children younger than 3 months. "Fisher-Price and every one of our employees take the responsibility of being part of your family seriously, and we are committed to earning that trust every day".

Elevated rockers and bassinets come with warnings that babies should be always strapped in to the seat.

On its website, Fisher-Price said the company "will continue to work closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and other worldwide regulators, to encourage the safe use of our products and find ways to keep your little ones happy, healthy and above all - safe". He also points out that the product "meets all applicable safety standards".

An Australian Competition and Consumer Commission spokesperson said they were investigating the product, but were not aware of any deaths of babies using the sleeper in Australia.

The statement went on to say that all safety warnings are included in their products' instructions as well as online. They recommend that parents stop using it once their infants reach that age, or sooner if they "exhibit rollover capabilities".

"This product is deadly and should be recalled immediately", said Kyle Yasuda, MD, FAAP, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The deaths of ten children in recent years have lead to parents being warned to stop using a portable cot. Tragically, that is not the case.
