Fisher-Price Recalls 800,000 Infant Sleepers Over Risk of Mold Exposure

Consumer Product Safety Commission

If you or someone you know has a baby, this is pretty big news you need to know about. Fisher-Price is recalling about 800,000 infant sleepers because of concerns about mold buildup- according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall affects Newborn Rock ‘n Play Sleepers sold in stores and online since September 2009.  The CPSC said Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold on the recliner seats and some parents have reported illnesses linked to the product.

A press release from the CPSC says:

Sixteen consumers have reported that their infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after sleeping in the product.

How is this possible? Mold can develop under the sleeper’s removable seat cushion if it’s left wet or not cleaned properly.  If you own a Newborn Rock ‘n Play Sleeper, you’re asked to immediately check it for any mild.  If you spot any you should stop using the sleeper right away and contact Fisher-Price to find out how to remove the mold properly.
