Fisher-Price recalls popular sleeper for mold

Posted: Updated:
UNDATED (AP) -

About 800,000 Fisher-Price infant recliner seats were recalled this week because they are prone to gather mold when they remain wet or are not frequently cleaned.

INFANT RECLINER SEATS

DETAILS: Fisher-Price Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper infant recliner seat. The sleeper is designed for babies up to 25 pounds and is composed of a soft plastic seat held by a metal rocking frame. The product has a removable, fabric cover that is sold in 14 patterns and color palettes.

WHY: Mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper when it remains wet or is infrequently cleaned, posing a risk of exposure to mold to infants sleeping in the product. Although mold is not present at the time of purchase, mold growth can occur after use.

INCIDENTS: 600 reports of mold on the product. Sixteen consumers have reported that their infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs, and hives after sleeping in the seat.

HOW MANY: About 800,000.
