The latest recall by the CPSC and Fisher Price is the Newborn Rock ‘n Play Sleeper™. There has been 600 reported cases of mold developing between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper when it remains wet/moist or is infrequently cleaned. Mold is a risk to infants because it is associated with respiratory illnesses and other infections. Although mold is not present at the time of purchase, mold growth can occur after use of the product.
The sleepers affected have been manufactured from September 2009 onward and sold online and at retail stores. Products currently in retail stores are not being recalled.
Consumers should immediately check for mold under the removable seat cushion. Dark brown, gray or black spots can indicate the presence of mold. If mold is found, consumers should immediately stop using the product. Consumers can contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions or further assistance.
