Fisher-Price/Mattel Recalls Infant Sleeper Due To Potential Mold Exposure

Fisher-Price/Mattel and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled 800,000 Newborn Rock ‘n Play Sleepers on January 8, 2013, due to potential mold exposure to infants. The CPSC has warned consumers to immediately inspect this product and stop using it if mold is found. According to the CPSC mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper, especially if the sleeper remains wet/moist or is not cleaned frequently. The CPSC says that while mold is not present at the time of purchase, mold growth can occur after use of the product.

The CPSC advises that mold has been associated with respiratory illnesses and other infections. Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold on the product. At least sixteen consumers have reported that their infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after sleeping in the product.

If you purchased a Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Newborn Sleeper after September 2009, the Sleeper has developed mold and your child has experienced respiratory problems, coughs, ear infections, eye infections, vomiting, or hives, those issues may be directly related to mold from the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper.

Consumers may contact Donald W. Stewart at Stewart & Stewart, P.C. Call (888) 890- 3486 for a free consultation and visit the CPSC webpage for more information regarding the Rock N Play recall:  http://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2013/Fisher-Price-Recalls-to-Inspect-Rock-N-Play-Infant-Sleepers-Due-to-Risk-of-Exposure-to-Mold/
