Fisher-Price Recalls Infant Sleepers
Fisher-Price has recalled approximately 800,000 Rock ‘N’ Play infant sleeper seats for possible mold contamination, according to the Daily Mail.
The Consumer Product and Safety Commission announced the recall Tuesday. The Commission says the seats have been sold in several retail stores and online since September 2009 and range in price from $50 to $85.
The seats feature a metal frame and plastic seat with a removable fabric cover. The Commission warns mold can develop between the plastic seat and fabric cover if the seat becomes wet or not regularly cleaned. Consumers are urged to check seats for dark spots under the fabric cover, which may indicate a presence of mold.
The mold has the potential to cause respiratory and other illnesses in infants.
Those using the seats are urged to stop immediately and contact the CPSC for cleaning information.
