Kids II Recalls Inclined Sleepers Linked to Infant Deaths
CR found that at least four children died in these products, which are similar to the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper
On Friday, Kids II recalled about 694,000 of its Rocking Sleepers, citing “five infant fatalities,” four of which were first reported by Consumer Reports on April 11.
The recall includes all models of Kids II Rocking Sleepers made from March 2012 through April 2019, such as the Ingenuity Moonlight Rocking Sleeper and the Bright Starts Playtime to Bedtime Rocking Sleeper. For a complete list of recalled products, read the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s recall announcement.
The recall comes two weeks after Fisher-Price recalled all 4.7 million of their Rock ’n Play Sleepers following a CR investigation that revealed the product was linked to at least 32 infant deaths.
The CPSC announcement urges parents and caregivers to stop using the product immediately.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has warned that inclined sleepers don't align with safe sleep guidelines, which state that babies should be put to bed alone on their backs on a firm, flat surface (not at an incline) free of restraints and soft bedding. All inclined sleepers, such as those made by Kids II, Fisher-Price, and other companies, increase the risk of suffocation and strangulation, according to the AAP.
