Update: On June 27, Fisher-Price recalled about 71,000 inclined-sleeper accessories sold with its Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards, because of fatalities reported while using other inclined sleep products.
Update: On May 15, Health Canada announced two separate recalls for Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleepers sold in Canada, citing safety risks. The first involved approximately 2,000 products sold from December 2009 to February 2011 with model number R6070. The second involved about 600 sleepers, of various models, that were sold on Amazon.ca (Amazon’s Canadian website) between January 2018 and April 2019. Health Canada said caregivers should immediately stop using the products for naptime or overnight sleep. The recall does not apply to Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Soothing Seats, which are nearly identical products but not marketed for sleep.
Update: On April 26, Kids II recalled 694,000 of its Rocking Sleepers citing infant deaths, and said parents should immediately stop using the products.
