Are you a parent of an infant? Or you know someone who uses various baby accessories like inclined sleepers, then here’s shocking news. On Thursday, Fisher-Price has recalled 71,000 of its line of products including inclined infant-sleeper add-ons. According to the U.S. Commission (CPSC), the move is a result of reported infant deaths due to one of its products. In those cases, the babies rolled from their back to their stomach or side while uncontrolled or under other situation. Now Fisher-Price recalls the accessory which rests on the top of the playpen. Although it has passed just two months, the company had recalled another product. Recently, Fisher-price recalled all models of its famous Rock N’ Play inclined sleepers.
The current decision of the company includes pulling back of all models of the Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard. No deaths have been reported due to those products. As per the company it has taken the decision citing safety concerns of this type of products. The toy maker notes safety is its top priority, and they work hard to obtain the confidence of parents every day. The move marks the American toy and baby product company’s complete walkout from selling inclined sleep products.
The company does not suggest inclined sleep products that need controlling a baby. It also notifies against using car seats, baby carriages, or other devices for sleep. According to the company, babies can roll or turn into a dangerous position and be choked and strangled when unable to move. Thus customers are requested to stop using the inclined-sleeper product and contact the company for a refund. Besides, the play yard and carry bag, and changing station clutch accessory are not a part of the recall. So the company recommends customers to continue using them. All in all, fisher-price suggests stopping using the products which lie on the playpen to make it an inclined sleeper.
