(LEX 18)– The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price have issued a consumer warning for the Fisher-Price Rock ‘N Play due to ten reported deaths when infants roll over in the product.

The CPSC report says that the 10 deaths in the Rock ‘N Play have occurred since 2015 after infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained. They said that all 10 infants were three-months-old or older.

CPSC is recommending that consumers stop using the product by the time the infant reaches three months of age or when the infant exhibits rollover capabilities. They cited medical literature, saying that infants usually begin rollover behaviors at three-months-old.

Fisher-Price warns that people should not use the product when infants can roll over and they say that the reported death shows the product is being used when infants are capable of rolling and without using the three-point harness restraint.

CPSC said that they have voted to publish a finding that the health and safety of the public requires immediate notice.
