The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price are announcing the recalls of the Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers and 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders after four infants died from suffocating.
There have been reports of four infant deaths in the 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother. The infants were believed to initially be placed on their backs unrestrained in the product. They were later found on their stomachs.
These deaths occurred between April 2019 and February 2020.
“These types of incidents are heart-breaking,” said CPSC Acting Chairman Robert Adler. “Loving parents put their babies in these products never expecting a tragedy. Inclined products, such as gliders, soothers, rockers and swings are not safe for infant sleep, due to the risk of suffocation.”
The fatalities were a 4-month old from Missouri, a 2-month old from Nevada, a 2-month old from Michigan and an 11-week old from Colorado.
There have been no deaths linked to the 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders.
