Fisher-Price Recalls Infant Incline Sleeper Accessory Included with Some Play Yards
UNITED STATES – According to an online news article published by www.usatoday.com, Fisher-Price has recalled an accessory part to some of the company’s Ultra Lite-Day & Night Play Yards following a recall of more than 4.7 million Rock ‘n Play sleepers.
Fisher-Price has recalled millions of infant sleeper products over the past few months. The largest recall involves more than 4.7 million Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play infant inclined sleeper products. Fisher-Price’s recent recall includes an incline sleeper accessory part to approximately 71,000 of Fisher-Price’s Ultra Lite-Day & Night Play Yards. The accessory part is the only portion of the product subject to the voluntary recall.
While no injuries or deaths have been reported in relation to the accessory part, Fisher-Price decided to recall the accessory part among safety concerns associated with infant incline sleepers generally. A representative of Consumer Reports believes the recall is long overdue given that the safety concerns associated with infant incline sleepers were known when all Rock ‘n Play sleepers were recalled. More than fifty deaths associated with the Rock ‘n Play have been reported both before and after the massive recall.
American Academy of Pediatrics Want All Infant Inclined Sleeper Products Off the Market
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) along with other advocates are pushing the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and lawmakers to eliminate infant incline sleepers as a category of sleep products for infants. According to the AAP, all inclined sleepers contradict safe sleep guidelines adopted by more than 67,000 children’s health care providers nationwide. Safe sleeping guidelines state that infants should be placed on their backs on a firm, flat surface in a crib, bassinet, or play yard.
