Fisher-Price and Kids2 Re-announce Infant Inclined Sleeper Recall After 100 Deaths


January 09, 2023

According to a news report published on pennlive.com, both Fisher-Price and Kids2 re-announce their recall of millions of rocking sleepers. The recalls were re-announced due to the tragic death of more than 100 infants. The affected infant rocker sleepers were recalled back in 2019 by Fisher-Price.

Fisher-Price recalled its Rock' n Play sleeper. Kids2 also re-announced its 2019 recall of its Rocking Sleepers. The recall announcements warn parents and caregivers that over 100 infants suffocated after they were placed unrestrained in the sleepers, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Kids2 has issued a recall of nearly 700,000 of its "Rocking Sleepers," and Fisher-Price has issued its recall affecting almost 5 million Rock' n Play Sleepers. At the time Fisher-Price issued its April 12, 2019 recall, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that there were 30 deaths connected to the Rock' n Play Sleepers. According to the CPSC report, the infants rolled onto their stomachs or sides because they were left unrestrained. The babies tragically asphyxiated.

Approximately 70 more tragic deaths have been reported since the 2019 recall announcement. Fisher-Price stated in some of its reports that the company could not confirm what caused the fatal incidents or that the deaths occurred in its Rock' n Play Sleeper. Kids2 Rocking Sleepers were reportedly involved in fifteen infant fatalities. According to Kids2, the infants rolled onto their sides or stomachs while unrestrained.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission reiterated with the recall re-announcements that it is unlawful to distribute or sell these or any other recalled sleepers.

Parents and caregivers are urged to immediately stop using either brand of inclined sleepers and to contact the affiliated company for a full refund. 

Kids2 sleepers were sold throughout the United States and online from March 2012 until April 2019 at a price of around $40 to $80.

The Fisher-Price infant sleepers were sold nationwide at retail stores and online from September 2009 until April 2019 at a cost between $40 and $150.

In 2021, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission created and approved regulations for products that are either marketed or intended for sleep for infants under the age of 5 months. The new baby sleep safety standards were made law in 2022.
