Safety alert for parents who own a Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper – the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warns you to inspect it for signs of mold. Fisher-Price has received over 600 reports of mold and 16 infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after being in Rock 'n Play sleepers.
About 800,000 Rock 'n Plays are affected by the recall. The CPSC encourages consumers to look for dark brown, gray or black spots under the removable seat cushion. They should immediately stop using the product and contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions if they find mold.
The potentially dangerous products were sold at stores across the nation and online beginning in September 2009. Products that are currently in stores aren't affected by the recall, but mold can develop after the Rock 'n Play is used.
