The infant sleeper was originally recalled in April 2019, following reports of more than 30 fatalities. Infants died in the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers after “(rolling) from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained, or under other circumstances,” the CPSC said.
Since the 2019 recall, approximately 70 additional deaths have been linked to the product, though Fisher-Price said it was unable to confirm the circumstances of some of the reported deaths. At least eight of the newly-reported deaths occurred after the initial recall announcement, the CPSC says in the release.
Fisher-Price reannounced the recall on Monday. About 4.7 million units are impacted.
