All models of Rock 'n Play Sleepers by Fisher-Price are being recalled after reports of infant fatalities occurring while using the product.

On Twitter, the company said it has voluntarily issued a recall of the product as part of putting safety first.

The news came days after Consumer Reporter published its investigation revealing the sleeper was tied to at least 32 deaths. "We stand by the safety of our products", Scothon said. Refunds will be issued to people who have owned the Rock ' Play Sleeper for 6 months or less; vouchers will go to those who have owned it for more than 6 months.

The recall affects all models of Rock 'n Play Sleepers, of which 4.7 million have been sold at major retailers in the US for $40 to $149. All 10 infants were three months old or older.

About 4.7 million units are affected by this recall and have been sold at major retailers for between $40 and $149.

"This product is deadly and should be recalled immediately", Kyle Yasuda, the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said on Tuesday.

Like many other parents, the Rock 'n Play was a huge help in her home. Tragically, that is not the case.

The CPSC said parents should never add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys or other items to places where babies sleep - cribs, bassinets, play pens or inclined sleepers.

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. The sleepers, a soft cradle that vibrates, are used to put babies to sleep.

Patty Davis, a spokeswoman with CPSC, had said the commission was aware of the report of additional fatalities and were looking into those deaths.

The infant deaths were tallied by an analysis from the consumer watchdog group, Consumer Reports.
