Fisher-Price warns parents over baby deaths linked to cot More

Fisher-Price had previously warned that babies older than three months had fallen out of the sleeper and died.

The commission said Friday that the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained in the device.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price have issued a warning following multiple infant deaths in the Rock 'n Play Sleeper.

A spokesperson for the commission, Patty Davis, revealed that the most recent death was reported last month.

A recall has not been issued, but the commission said it is now investigating the product to determine whether or not it needs to be recalled.

"Make sure that no pillows, blankets or extra padding are placed in the Rock 'n Play sleeper", a statement from Mattel read.

In response to the US CPSC, Fisher Price said in a statement the company had a "long, proud tradition of prioritising safety" with regards to its products.

On its website, Fisher-Price said the company "will continue to work closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and other global regulators, to encourage the safe use of our products and find ways to keep your little ones happy, healthy and above all - safe".

The company, however, maintains that the sleeper still meets worldwide safety standards and that the safety instructions warn parents whose children can sit or pull themselves up on their own not to use the product.

The statement went on to say that all safety warnings are included in their products' instructions as well as online.
