WARNING TO PARENTS ABOUT FISHER-PRICE ROCK ‘N PLAY AFTER INFANT DEATHS

April 8, 2019 by admin

(Source:  https://cpsc.gov/Newsroom/News-Releases/2019/CPSC-ALERT-CPSC-and-Fisher-Price-Warn-Consumers-About-Fisher-Price-Rock-N-Play-Due-to-Reports-of-Death-When-Infants-Roll-Over-in-the-Product)

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price are warning parents about the Rock ‘n Play sleeper after reports that 10 infants since 2015 have died while rolling over while in the seat.  More specifically, the CPSC is aware of that these deaths have taken place when the infants (3 months of age or older), who were not restrained, rolled from their back onto their stomach or onto their side.  In a joint statement, the CPSC and Fisher-Price have recommended that parents and caregivers stop using the product not later than the child reaching the age of 3, or even sooner if the baby “exhibits rollover capabilities. Because infants typically start rollover tendencies at 3 months, the CPSC has previously warned consumers to use restraints in sleep products for infants with an incline.

According to the CPSC, although Fisher-Price has warned consumers to stop using the Rock ‘n Play when infants can roll over, the reported deaths show that some consumers are still using the item even after infants are able to roll over and without using the three point harness restraint equipped on the product.

In order to avoid an unimaginable tragedy, in the warning posted on the CPSC website, the CPSC and Fisher-Price make sure to remind parents and caregivers to “create a safe sleep environment for infants” in any situation (i.e., in a crib, in a play yard, in a bassinet, etc.) by never adding blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, or any other item at all.  The CPSC further reminds parents and caregivers to place infants on their backs.

The attorneys at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C., are concerned for the safety of children and families in Reading, Berks County, Pottsville, Schuylkill County, and throughout Central and Eastern Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia. The lawyers at the firm handle injury claims, including claims for serious injury and death caused by the negligence of others and by unsafe and dangerous products.
