As of Tuesday, Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold and 16 reports where infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after they were in the Fisher-Price Infant sleeper.

The baby product recall effects all Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Recliner Sleepers. The recliners were sold at all mass merchandise stores nationwide and online since September 2009 for between $50 and $85.  The Fisher Price Infant Sleeper is for babies weighing up to 25 pounds and is made of a soft plastic seat held by a metal rocking frame, and has a removable fabric cover.

The CPSC asked consumers to check for dark brown, gray or black spots that can indicate the presence of mold under the removable seat cushion. If mold is found, they are advised to immediately stop using the Infant Sleeper and contact Fisher-Price (800) 432-5437 or www.service.mattel.com for cleaning instructions or further assistance.
