I recently heard that Fisher Price has recalled their Rock’n’ Play Sleeper. What should I know about this lawsuit and when should I call a lawyer?
In April of 2019, Fisher Price recalled 4.7 million of it’s Rock n’ Play Sleepers. Released in 2009, the popular infant sleeper has been recalled after 32 infants died while using it. Unfortunately the first known death occurred in 2011, but it took many years, a Consumer Reports investigation, and a large group of medical doctors to urge the corporation to acknowledge and address the concerns about the sleepers’ safety.
Fisher Price initially acknowledged 10 deaths that may have been associated with the sleeper, they now do say they are aware of 32 deaths. However, Fisher Price has not admitted the sleeper is the cause; rather, they claim the infants had mental or physical health problems, or the sleeper was being used in the wrong way and contradictory to the manual.

Why the Rock n’ Play Sleeper Was Recalled
In April of 2019, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher Price issued a joint warning about the Fisher Price Rock’n’ Play Sleeper. The warning, and recall, comes after the large corporation acknowledged at least 10 deaths that may have been caused by the sleeper. The deaths are thought to have occurred after the baby rolled over and became trapped in the concave cloth the lines it. Their first warning issued to parents asked them to stop using the product after the child could roll over or turned 3 months of age – whichever came first. The problem, as legal advocates point out, is that a majority of the children were unable to roll over and were less than 3 months of age. So, as many lawyers and medical experts are asking, why have 32 babies lost their life? Investigations are underway to determine whether or not the warnings included in the products’ manual and issued by the company were inaccurate, misleading, or false. If this is true, there will likely be Fisher-Price Rock’n’ Play Sleeper defective product lawsuits.
