Infant deaths prompt recall of more rocking sleepers
Following reports of infant deaths, Kids II has announced a recall of 694,000 Infant
Rocking Sleepers. The notice comes shortly after Fisher-Price announced a recall of
4.7 million Rock n Play sleepers.
Some infants had rolled from their backs to their stomachs while unrestrained in the
products, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Parents should not use either product and should contact the company for a refund
or voucher. They also should report incidents to SaferProducts.gov.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) called for the CPSC to pull the Rock n Play
from shelves after Consumer Reports reported 32 infant deaths from the product.
Five infants have died in the Kids II Infant Rocking Sleepers since 2012. The Kids
II products were sold nationwide from March 2012 through April 26, 2019 at major retailers
like Walmart, Target and Toys “R” Us and online for $40 to $80.
The AAP does not recommend letting infants sleep in inclined products that require
restraining a baby. Infants should be placed to sleep on their backs, on a separate,
flat and firm sleep surface without any bumpers, bedding or stuffed toys.
