The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price “re-announced” a recall of Rock ‘n Play Sleepers Monday, saying there have been eight deaths since the recall was first announced nearly three years ago.

About 4.7 million of the sleepers were sold before the recall was announced in April 2019, with the CPSC saying at the time that 30 infant deaths were linked to the product.

Since then, about 70 more deaths have been reported, including eight after the recall was first announced, according to the CPSC.

“Infant deaths have occurred in the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers after the infants rolled unbound from their backs to their stomachs or sides, or under other circumstances,” the CPSC said in the recall announcement.

Fisher-Price did not respond to a request for comment Monday.

The company said at the time of the original recall that it remains “stands by the safety of all of our products,” but issued the recall “in light of reported incidents of the product being used contrary to safety warnings and guidance.”


Separately, the recall for Kids2 Rocking Sleepers was also re-announced Monday, with the CPSC saying 15 deaths have been linked to the product, including four since the initial recall.

“We are issuing this announcement because, despite their removal from the market and a ban on sale, babies continue to die in these products,” CPSC Chairman Alexander Hoehn-Saric said in a statement.

“I urge all parents, grandparents and caregivers to follow the instructions in this announcement and stop using these products immediately.”

A spokesman for Kids2 did not respond to a request for comment on Monday.
