The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price are voluntary recalling about 800,000 Newborn Rock ‘n Play Sleepers because of concerns about mold.
Mold may develop between the removable seat cushion and the sleeper’s hard plastic frame if it remains wet or isn’t kept clean. The mold may cause respiratory illnesses and other infections.
So far, Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold on the product. Sixteen people have reported that their infant was treated for respiratory issues, coughs, and hives after sleeping in it.
