Fischer-Price is recalling two baby sleep rockers that have been tied to the deaths of four American infants since April 2019, the company announced Thursday in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The four babies – a 4-month-old from Missouri, a 2-month-old from Nevada, a 2-month-old from Michigan and an 11-week-old from Colorado – were "placed on their backs unrestrained" in the 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother and later found on their stomachs.
There have been no deaths reported for the other recalled product, the 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders.
"These types of incidents are heart-breaking," CPSC Acting Chairman Robert Adler said Thursday. "Loving parents put their babies in these products never expecting a tragedy. Inclined products, such as gliders, soothers, rockers and swings are not safe for infant sleep, due to the risk of suffocation."
