Fisher-Price Recalls Sleep Accessory in Play Yards


Fisher-Price has issued another recall on a previously made baby product. The U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has also recalled the Fisher-Price Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards. According to the CPSC , this recall stems from the hazards associated with other inclined sleep products, which resulted in infant fatalities after infants rolled from their backs to their stomachs or sides while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.


All models of the Fisher-Price Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards feature an inclined sleeper accessory.


The CPSC estimates that the recall impacts about 71,000 units. This includes products (model numbers CBV60, CHP86, CHR06, CJK24, and DJD11) sold at juvenile product stores and mass merchandisers nationwide from October 2014 through June 2019. Consumers that own the item should immediately stop using the inclined sleeper accessory and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher. The play yard portion of the product without the inclined sleeper accessory, and changing station clutch accessory and carry bag, may continue to be used.


In April, the company issued a recall the Fisher-Price Rock ’n Plays, which affected 4.7 million units sold to date. That followed a Consumer Reports analysis, which attributed the sleepers to 32 infant deaths. The CPSC held the product responsible for 10 infant deaths since 2015. In April, Mattel’s CFO Joseph Euteneuer estimated the recall cost the company $27 million in the quarter.
