CPSC warns against Rock’n Plays for babies over 3 months

CPSC warns against Rock’n Plays for babies over 3 months

One of Fisher-Price's more popular products, the Rock 'n Play, has been responsible for at least 10 infant deaths, the company revealed on Friday.

While the company isn't recalling the product, it's warning parents to stop using the Rock 'n Play when a child reaches 3 months old or begins to roll over. Fisher-Price says "the reported deaths show that some consumers are still using the product when infants are capable of rolling and without using the three-point harness restraint".

Fisher-Price says that its sleeper satisfies all security standards and educated parents to utilize restraints, put babies on their backs to sleep, also make sure that no pillows or blankets are placed in the sleeper.

"A child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy", a separate statement issued by Fisher-Price parent Mattel reads. The most recent death was reported last month.

She said they are now investigating the cot.

It's up to Cain to move ahead with Fed nomination
On Facebook earlier this week, Cain said the reason he was under attack as a nominee is because he is a conservative. Cain's bid for president in 2012 was derailed by accusations of sexual harassment that he has repeatedly denied.

"If it turns out that it needs to be recalled, we will move forward with that", Davis said.

We call on the @USCPSC to issue an immediate recall for the @FisherPrice Rock 'n Play Sleeper, which has been tied to 32 infant deaths. The children who died in the sleeper were older than 3 months and, while unrestrained, managed to roll on their stomachs or sides before they died, BuzzFeed News reports.

In addition to advising against sleep products like the Rock 'n Play, the AAP also cautions parents against using any other products for sleep that require restraining a baby.

The Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play is an inclined seat created to help babies sleep.

"This is the second Fisher-Price product to raise concerns this year". We are always concerned by reports such as those we are seeing from the USA, ' the ACCC spokesperson told The Age.
