Safety Warning: Mold In Infant Rocker


A warning to parents and caregivers from the Consumer Product Safety Commission: inspect that Fisher-Price newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper for mold.

The agency says mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame, if the sleeper remains wet or not cleaned properly.  

Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold and 16 infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after being in the bouncer.

The warning applies to 800,000 infant rockers sold nationwide since Sept., 2009.

Dark brown, gray or black spots indicate the presence of mold. If mold is found, stop using the device and to contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions or further assistance at 1-800-432-5437.
