Just two months after they recalled all models of their popular Rock N' Play inclined sleepers, Fisher-Price has now issued another recall. The company has announced that it is recalling the inclined sleeper accessory that comes with its Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards.
Today, in partnership with the CPSC, Fisher-Price announced a voluntary recall of the inclined sleeper accessory included with the Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard. Immediately discontinue use of the inclined sleeper accessory. For info, visit https://t.co/7D8jTEmLxs pic.twitter.com/H67pFkjAmH— Fisher-Price® (@FisherPrice) June 27, 2019
The Consumer Product Safety Commission states that infant fatalities have been associated with other inclined sleep products. It states that inclined products allow infants to roll from their backs onto their stomachs or side while unrestrained as well as under other circumstances.
The recall affects products with the model numbers CBV60, CHP86, CHR06, CJK24, and DJD11. Consumers can locate the model number on the fabric label on the inside of the play yard and back of the inclined sleeper pad. People who have purchased the play yard should note that only the inclined sleeper accessory is being recalled, not the entire play yard.
While no injuries or fatalities have been reported using this particular inclined sleeper, Fisher-Price, in connection with the CPSC has decided to pull the product from shelves and issue the voluntary recall due to fatalities reported with other inclined sleepers. "We proactively approached the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to initiate a voluntary recall of the inclined sleeper accessory included with all models of the Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard, due to safety concerns raised about inclined sleep products," the company states on their website. "We initiated this voluntary recall even though there have been no reported injuries or fatalities involving this product."
The product has been sold in children's stores and other mass merchandisers between October 2014 up until June 2019, with the CPSC stating the recall will affect around 71,000 products. Fisher-Price states that if you have this product you should stop using it immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher.
