"Since the 2009 product introduction, over 30 infant fatalities have occurred in Rock 'n Play Sleepers, after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances", the notice said.
The Rock "n Play is not on Toys R Us" Canadian website, is listed on Walmart's Canadian website but is not available to purchase, and is available on Amazon and Best Buy's Canadian websites.
The voluntary recall comes a week after Fisher-Price and CPSC issued a safety warning on the sleepers.More news: Father claims Jovic to reject Barcelona, Man City for Frankfurt
A previous warning from Fisher-Price said that older babies that were not buckled into the sleeper had rolled over, fallen out of it and been killed.
Rock 'n Play Sleepers were sold at major retailers for between $40 and $49. It does not meet the AAP's recommendations for a safe sleep environment for any baby.
The recall did not say what caused the infants' deaths. "There is convincing evidence that the Rock "n Play inclined sleeper puts infants" lives at risk, and CPSC must step up and take immediate action to remove it from stores and prevent further tragedies". The product was manufactured in China.
"This product is deadly and should be recalled immediately", Kyle Yasuda, the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said on Tuesday. "All other inclined sleepers should be investigated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission".More news: The Masters 2019 tee times: Thursday, Round 1
"The AAP advises against using vehicle seats, strollers, or other devices for sleep because of the risk that a baby could roll or turn into an unsafe position and be incapable of moving, leading to suffocation or strangulation", it said.
Earlier this month, CPSC said it was aware of 10 infant deaths in the Rock 'n Play since 2015, but the warning for parents to stop using the sleeper once their child can roll over stopped short of a recall.
"Infants should always sleep on their back, on a separate, flat and firm sleep surface without any bumpers or bedding", Rachel Moon, MD, FAAP, said in a statement.More news: Union Workers at Stop & Shop Supermarkets On Strike
