Infant Deaths Have Fisher-Price Recalling Nearly 5 Million Rock’n Play Sleepers
Fisher-Price is recalling all models of Rock’n Play Sleepers after 32 infant fatalities occurred while using the product. The fatalities occurred between 2011 and 2018 “after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances,” according to the (CPSC) Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The cloth-covered cradle became a staple in many households for sleep-deprived parents as it vibrated, played music and positioned the baby at an incline.
It is alleged that Fisher- Price and the CPSC knew about the deaths and danger of this product for years and could have taken steps to prevent this tragedy from happening.
Fisher-Price is offering full cash refunds for Rock’n Plays purchased in the last six months. Sleepers bought before that are eligible for a cash voucher toward a new Fisher-Price product.
If your infant has suffered from injuries from a Fisher-Price Rock’n Play Sleeper, please call the experts at Inserra Kelley Sewell to see whether you might be entitled to compensation.
