The Wall Street Journal: Fisher-Price recalls Rock ’n Play sleepers following over 30 reports of infant deaths

Fisher-Price’s Rock ‘n Play sleepers are being pulled off the market following more than 30 reports of infant deaths, a consumer-safety watchdog said Friday.

The recall covers all models — 4.7 million products in all — and follows the American Academy of Pediatrics’ call for an immediate recall, citing an investigation from influential product reviewer Consumer Reports that linked 36 deaths to the inclined sleepers.

Last week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price parent Mattel Inc. MAT, +0.74% issued an alert, urging consumers to stop using the product when infants reach three months in age or as soon as they are able to roll over.
