Infant Sleepers Recalled after Reports of Multiple Deaths
The deaths of multiple infants have caused two manufacturers to recall their popular infant sleepers. On April 12, 2019, Fischer-Price recalled its Rock n’ Play sleepers due to over 30 infant fatalities. On April 26, 2019, Kids II (a.k.a. Kids2) similarly recalled all of its rocking sleepers due to 5 reported infant fatalities. According to both recalls, the fatalities occurred “after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.” The two recalls effect over 5 million products.
