Fisher-Price has recalled 800,000 Rock ‘N Play Infant Sleeper units over concerns that the rocking device can harbor mold between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper. Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold on the product. Sixteen people have reported that their infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after sleeping in the product. The sleeper is designed for babies up to 25 pounds and is made of a soft plastic seat held by a metal rocking frame. The product has a removable, fabric cover that is sold in 14 patterns and colors.
The CPSC report says that while the product does not come with mold, it can grow in the area beneath the seat if the cushion stays wet. The sleeper was sold at stores nationwide and online since September 2009 for between $50 and $85. Units currently in retail stores are not affected by this recall to inspect. For more information, contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at www.service.mattel.com for more information.
