 Fisher-Price recalls millions of its Rock ‘n Play SleepersMattel’s Fisher-Price is recalling millions of its Rock ‘n Play Sleepers. The reason are safety concerns with the sleepers leading to deaths.

The recall comes from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, ToyNews reports. It notes that there are at least 30 infant deaths recorded in the sleeper since 2009.

Fisher-Price maintains that the product is safe. Still, the company will conform to the recall which is voluntary. It’s noted that about 4.7 million sleepers are affected by the recall.

“While we continue to stand by the safety of all of our products, given the reported incidents in which the product was used contrary to safety warnings and instructions, we have decided in partnership with the CPSC that this voluntary recall is the best course of action,” read a statement from Fisher-Price.

The problem comes when infants become able to roll over from their backs onto their stomach or side and if they aren’t strapped in. The BBC reports that Fisher-Price warned customers to stop using the sleeper once infants can roll over.
