32 Infant Deaths Since 2011. When Did Fisher-Price Know?
As reported by many national news networks on April 12, 2019, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled all models of the Rock N’ Play as a result of the product being linked to 32 baby deaths since 2011.
“This is shocking news. Many of us have the Rock N’ Play in our homes. As the parent of a newborn, I have it in my living room right now”, said product defect attorney, Mr. Laurence Banville.
The Rock N’Play recall comes only days after the American Academy of Pediatrics brought the number of deaths to the attention of the CPSC.
“The product is deadly and should be recalled immediately” quoted Kyle Yausda, MD, FAAP – the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“The question now is when did Fisher-Price know that this was a risk and why did they not recall the product before now?” stated Banville.
“These families need answers, and knowing how large corporations like Fisher-Price work, the only way to get to the bottom of this is through civil litigation. When the time is right for these families, we would be honored to represent them and get the answers and justice they deserve”, stated Banville.
The Issue With The Rock N’Play
The warning issued by the CPSC on April 8, advised parents to stop using the infant sleeper when a baby turns 3 months old, or begins to roll, whichever comes first. Most of the reported infant deaths to date are from infants younger than 3 months old who were unable to breathe because of the position they were in.
Former Product Recalls For The Infant Sleeper
This is not the first time that Fisher-Price have found themselves with a recall for the Rock N’Play infant sleeper. In 2013, a recall was issued due to a mold issue after 600 parents complained about discovering mold forming under the cushion. To read about this recall visit here.
Was It Foreseeable That Infant Deaths Could Be Caused By The Rock’N Play?
This is a key question.
Would a reasonable person foresee that babies sleeping in an incline could turn and suffocate?
A Google search of the actual product name shows parents asking if its safe. So why no warning?
