ABC7.com reports that both the Infant-to-Toddler and Newborn-to-Toddler rockers are subject to the recall due to a defect that can result in death if babies fall asleep in the rockers.
This is not the first Fisher-Price rocker recall due to infant fatalities. The ABC7 report says that in 2021 Fisher-Price recalled the 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother after four children, all under the age of four months, died in that model rocker.
Additionally, Fisher-Price recalled the Rock ‘n Play Sleeper 2019 following 30 infant fatalities.
Fisher-Price insists that infants should not be left in the rockers unattended and should not be allowed to sleep in them.
The report indicates that Fisher-Price has sold over 17 million rockers across the globe since the 1990s.
