James Swartz Discusses Inclined Sleeper Recall
Consumers should stop using all inclined sleepers – even models that have not been recalled – because of the risk of accidental suffocation, federal safety regulators said Friday.
The warning from the Consumer Product Safety Commission comes after months of controversy over the popular infant-sleeping devices, which began in April with the recall of millions of Fisher-Price’s Rock ‘n Plays because of safety concerns and culminated in the release of a study two weeks ago that found the product’s design inherently dangerous.
The CPSC’s new warning applies to any sleeping device that allows babies to sleep at an angle greater than 10 degrees. Most inclined sleepers stood at about 30 degrees.
