The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price are alerting consumers to at least 13 reported deaths between 2009–2021 of infants in Fisher-Price Infant-to-Toddler Rockers and Newborn-to-Toddler Rockers. More information about the warning is available from the CPSC Newsroom.
Rockers should never be used for sleep, and infants should never be unsupervised or unrestrained in the rockers.
Consumers are urged to report incidents involving these or other infant products to CPSC. CPSC investigates incidents and fatalities that occurred while infants were in the products.
Parents and caregivers should never use inclined products, such as rockers, gliders, soothers, and swings, for infant sleep and should not leave infants in these products unsupervised, unrestrained, or with bedding material, due to the risk of suffocation.
Consumers are reminded:
- The best place for an infant to sleep is on a firm, flat surface in a crib or play yard.
- Parents and caregivers should use a fitted sheet only and never add blankets, pillows, padded crib bumpers or other items to an infant’s sleeping environment.
- Infants should always be placed to sleep on their back. Infants who fall asleep in an inclined or upright position should be moved to a safe sleep environment with a firm, flat surface, such as a crib.
Fisher-Price recommends consumers visit Fisher-Price’s Safe Start webpage for safety videos, tips and more safety information as well as the latest safety warnings for rockers and other infant products.
