Fisher-Price Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper

Recall date: January 8, 2013

Name of product:
Fisher-Price Newborn Rock 'N Play Sleeper

The Hazard:
Mold can grow between the sleeper's plastic, rocking frame and the removable seat cushion according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold developing on the product, and 16 infants have reportedly been treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after using the sleeper.

Description:
The "recall to inspect" involves about 800,000 sleepers -- any currently in use -- manufactured by Fisher-Price Inc., of East Aurora, N.Y. The rocking sleepers, with a removable fabric cover available in 14 different patterns, were designed for use in babies up to 25 pounds, and were sold at mass merchandise stores and online since September 2009. (Sleepers in stores now are not affected by the recall.)

What to do: Consumers should check under the fabric seat cushion of their rocking sleeper for any signs of mold. If there's mold, consumers should  stop using the product immediately and contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions or further assistance. Cleaning and care instructions can also be found at www.service.mattel.com or by contacting 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.
