Fisher-Price recalls 71,000 inclined infant sleepers

Despite the recalls of Fisher-Price and Kids II inclined sleepers, other companies continue to sell the product.

Fisher-Price's decision to pull the inclined-sleeper accessory included with all models of the Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard is due to safety concerns about such products, the company said in a statement.

Fisher-Price issued a recall Thursday for over 70,000 inclined sleeper attachments.

The Fisher-Price play yard involved in the recall includes model numbers CBV60, CHP86, CHR06, CJK24 and DJD11.

However, there have been no reported injuries with this product. Approximately 4.7 million of those units were recalled on April 12.

The products had come under fire from the American Academy of Pediatrics, who claimed the inclined sleepers, which were marketed as a place for infants to nap or sleep, failed to meet the group's recommendations for a "safe sleep environment". Owners can find the model number on the fabric label inside of the playpen and on the fabric label on the back of the inclined sleeper pad.

Consumer Reports found that the 10 to 30-degree incline causes airway compression and suffocation in infants.

Customers are encouraged to stop using the sleeper accessory immediately and can request a refund from Fisher-Price.

CPSC noted that the inclined sleeper is the only portion of the product subject to recall.

The inclined sleeper accessory is the only item subject to recall, the news release said, noting that the play yard by itself and other accessories are still okay to use.

The CPSC said the recall affects about 71,000 products.
