Kids II recalls 700,000 rocking sleepers after reports of infant deaths
LOS ANGELES - Kids II is recalling nearly 700,000 rocking sleepers linked to at least five infant deaths since 2012.
The move comes just two weeks after Fisher-Price recalled its similar Rock 'n Play sleepers in which more than 30 babies died over a decade. The deaths in both sleepers occurred after infants rolled over from their backs to their stomachs or sides while unrestrained.
Kids II Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Friday anyone who bought a sleeper should stop using it right away.
Consumers should call Kids II toll-free at (866) 869-7954 or visit www.kids2.com and click on “Important Recall Information" to find out more. Customers can get a refund or voucher.
The sleepers sold for between $40 and $80 at Walmart, Target and other retailers nationwide from March 2012 through April 26, 2019, officials said.
The recall affects 694,000 units.
The CPSC has a full list of affected product names and model numbers on its website.
