Fisher-Price®, in cooperation with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily announcing a recall to inspect Fisher-Price Newborn Rock ’n Play Sleepers™. Mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper when it remains wet/moist or is infrequently cleaned.
How many times have we gone to put our babies down for a nap after a feeding and left the cleaning until later? Or when bottle feeding? I can’t tell you how many times we woke up to a wet crib sheet or wet car seat because the bottle leaked. When we’re rushed because we’re late or find out about the mess and the timing is bad, we as sleepy, tired, overwhelmed parents can forget. Oh boy, can we forget.
If you have this product at home, please examine under the removable fabric seat cover and fabric liner for dark brown, gray or black spots indicating mold. If mold growth is discovered, you can click here for cleaning instructions.
The Newborn Rock ’n Play Sleeper™ is designed for babies up to 25 pounds and is composed of a metal rocking frame and removable, washable fabric cover.
The product is sold in various patterns and color palettes. Mold is not present at the time of purchase, but mold can grow after use of the product. Newborn Rock ’n Play™ Sleepers currently in retail stores are not affected by this recall to inspect.
If you have a newborn at home, keep a close watch on those bottles. If the cover should get wet, take it off and pop it in the washer. Better safe than sorry.
You can contact Fisher-Price at 1-800-432-5437 Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 AM and 6 PM Eastern Time.
