Fisher Price branded Rock’n’Play Sleepers; affected batch/lots: all current products.

When the restraint system is not correctly used, or under other circumstances such as the addition of bedding or pillows, or when the seat is used for a child older than three (3) months, the child may roll over from the back position to the stomach or side. If this occurs it may lead to suffocation.

The US CPSC has reported that since its 2009 product introduction, over thirty (30) infant fatalities have occurred in the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, possibly after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Fisher Price branded Rock’n’Play Sleeper products do not comply with the requirements of the relevant European legislation.

Consequently, a recall of these products from end users and a withdrawal of the product from the market withdrawn from the European marketplace has been ordered.

==> Please do not use any of the recalled Fisher Price branded Rock’n’Play Sleeper products. Instead, please contact your retailer for a refund.
