In all cases, the babies rolled from their backs to their stomachs or side when the accident occurred, according to the CPSC. The agency provided no other information as to the exact cause of the infants’ deaths.

Has the Sleeper Been Recalled?
The most recent death occurred last month, according to CPSC spokeswoman Patty Davis, although she failed to elaborate when the others occurred.
CPSC is warning consumers to stop using the Fisher-Price sleeper if their babies are 3 months old or “as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities.” Davis said the agency is investigating the infant sleeper.
‘”If it turns out that it needs to be recalled, we will move forward with that,” Davis told CNN.
Fisher-Price had previously warned consumers to stop using the Rock n Play Sleeper when infants have the ability to roll over and possibly fall.
“[T]he reported deaths show that some consumers are still using the product when infants are capable of rolling and without using the three point harness restraint,” the warning said.
Chuck Scothon, general manager at Fisher-Price, said the sleeper meets all “applicable safety standards,” but also that “A child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy.”
“Fisher-Price and every one of our employees take the responsibility of being part of your family seriously, and we are committed to earning that trust every day,” Scothon added.
