Doctors Urge Recall of Fisher Price Sleeper Seat
13 April, 2019, 03:28
The loss of a child is tragic and heart-breaking.
"We continue to work closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission regarding the safe use of our products, including the Rock 'n Play Sleeper", Scothon said.
"We continue to stand by the safety of the Rock 'n Play Sleeper, as it meets all applicable safety standards, including those of the standards organization, known as the ASTM International, and is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association (JPMA)", Fisher-Price said in a statement.
In response to the alert, Fisher-Price said in a statement that their product meets safety standards, but there is a risk the product would be used incorrectly.
An Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) spokesperson said they were not aware of any deaths of babies using the sleeper in Australia.
With a quick search on Facebook's Marketplace and within a 60-mile radius of Milwaukee, TODAY'S TMJ4 saw at least a dozen Rock 'n Play Sleepers for sale.
According to Evan Overton, the infant's mother, they haven't filed suit but are negotiating with Fisher-Price. Some models include a feature that automatically rocks the inclined sleeper with a button; others vibrate or rock manually.
But the New York-based toy company said that it voluntarily issued a joint alert with the CPSC on April 5 warning parents to stop using the rocking crib without restraints once their children are able to roll over or are more than three-months-old. "We believe that it is not a safe product for parents to use for infants of any age, and the safest thing to do is to recall the product immediately".
While parents and carers should always heed the safety warnings and instructions when using rockers and bouncers, Red Nose recommends only using them for supervised play time.
The AAP does not recommend any sleeping products for infants or any products that require restraining a baby.
An American consumer watchdog group is demanding the recall of an incline sleeping chair for infants that has been linked to over 30 baby deaths in the last eight years. According to Fisher-Price's website, this is exactly how the idea for the Rock 'n Play originated - a mom looking to make a product that would allow her spit-up prone baby to sleep through the night.
The CPSC responded to CR by saying it is "continuing to evaluate the product and investigate whether it contains a defect. and if the evidence indicates a need for a recall, we will take that step". It also advises against using auto seats, strollers or other devices for sleeping due to risk of roll over leading to possible suffocation or strangulation. "Waterbeds, air mattresses, pillows, couches/sofas or soft materials are not safe sleep surfaces for babies", the CPS warns parents.
