Fisher-Price and the Consumer Product Safety Commission today issued a product warning after multiple reports of infant deaths in a Fisher-Price product.

Since 2015, 10 infant deaths have been reported in the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play, according to the commission.

The reports indicated the deaths happened when infants rolled over in the product.

Because deaths continue to happen, the commission recommends people stop using the product when infants reach 3 months old or as soon as infants begin to roll over.



The commission said it has previously warned people to use restraints in infant-inclined sleep products.

Fisher-Price officials also warn people to stop use of the product when infants begin to roll over.

Company officials said the reported deaths appear to show that some people continue using the product even after infants are able to roll, and are allowing those infants in the product without using the three-point harness restraint.


In its warning, Fisher-Price officials and the commission remind people to create a “safe sleep environment for infants, whether using a crib, bassinet, play yard, or inclined sleeper.”


The warning says to never add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys or other items and to always place infants so they sleep on their backs.
