A warning has been issued for the Fisher Price Rock 'n Play after 10 infants died in the baby sleeper

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price have issued a warning following multiple infant deaths in the Rock 'n Play Sleeper.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is asking customers to stop using a Fisher-Price baby sleeper if their children are able to roll over because several infants have died.

A consumer watchdog has warned parents to stop using a baby sleeper after it was linked to the deaths of 10 children in the United States.

The CPSC says it previously warned consumers to use restraints in the infant inclined-sleep products.

In it, Fisher-Price general manager Chuck Scothon reminds parents to "always place infants on their backs to sleep, and make sure that no pillows, blankets or extra padding are placed in the Rock 'n Play Sleeper".

But he added that the product meets all "applicable safety standards".

AMI's stable of titles that are not up for sale include Us Weekly , OK, Star, In Touch, Men's Journal , and Muscle & Fitness. The Bezos attack also threatened to upend American Media's non-prosecution agreement with federal prosecutors.

A spokesperson for the commission, Patty Davis, revealed that the most recent death was reported last month. In all cases, the infants were not secured with the sleeper's harness.

The Rock 'n Play Sleeper is a seat that includes vibrations and an incline to help babies sleep.

The statement went on to say that all safety warnings are included in their products' instructions as well as online.

We call on the @USCPSC to issue an immediate recall for the @FisherPrice Rock 'n Play Sleeper, which has been tied to 32 infant deaths.

In addition to advising against sleep products like the Rock 'n Play, the AAP also cautions parents against using any other products for sleep that require restraining a baby.

A baby sleeping on their stomach can much more easily choke if they regurgitate milk. We are always concerned by reports such as those we are seeing from the USA, ' the ACCC spokesperson told The Age.
