Fischer Price Recall

Fisher-Price Warns Parents After 13 Deaths Linked to Rockers

Baby product manufacturer Fisher-Price is urgently warning consumers about the danger of infants sleeping in rockers after 13 deaths were reported between 2009 and 2021.

The deaths occurred while the infants were using a Fisher-Price Infant-to-Toddler Rocker or Newborn-to-Toddler Rocker, both inclined rockers that are not designed for sleeping. Infants should never be left unsupervised, unrestrained, or with bedding material in the rocker, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

More than 17 million of the rockers have been sold by Fisher-Price worldwide since the 1990s. Although there is no recall, consumers are urged to report any incidents to the CPSC and review the Fisher-Price website for safety videos and information regarding their products. 

This warning comes on the heels of a recall of a similar product, the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play, which has been linked to more than 50 infants deaths. Such incidents have led the CPSC to implement a new rule that requires all new infant sleep products have a sleep surface angle of 10 degrees or less to avoid the risk of suffocation. The rule goes into effect June 23.
