Rock ‘n Glide Soother Recall
On June 3, 2021, Fisher-Price recalled approximately 120,000 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers following the deaths of 4 young infants who suffocated. In all cases, the infants were put on their backs in the product but not restrained, and later found face-down on their stomachs. The products were sold from January 2014 through December 2020 for about $108.
Soothe ‘n Play Glider Recall
Fisher-Price also recalled about 55,000 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders because it is very similar to the Rock ‘n Glide, although no deaths were reported. They were sold from November 2018 through May 2021 for about $125 at stores like Target, Walmart, Amazon and more.
Fisher-Price’s recalled baby gliders are designed with an inclined seat that has 2 modes: a powered glider seat and an infant rocker. In both modes, the seat can move in a head-to-toe or side-to-side motion.
Hazards of Inclined Sleepers
The Rock ‘n Play Soother has an inclined seat, which has been proven to be extremely dangerous for babies. More than 100 infants have suffocated to death in inclined sleepers, and hundreds more have nearly died or suffered serious injuries when they rolled over.
Babies can also suffocate in inclined sleepers due to “positional asphyxia,” which is when their chin touches their chest and compresses their airway, making it difficult or impossible to breathe.
Rock ‘n Glide Linked to 4 Infant Deaths
Between April 2019 and February 2020, the recalled Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Glide Soother was linked to four tragic deaths, including a 4-month old from Missouri, a 2-month old from Nevada, a 2-month old from Michigan, and an 11-week old baby from Colorado.
Safety Standards Will Effectively Ban Inclined Sleepers
In June 2021, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a major new federal safety standard for infant sleep products that will “effectively eliminate” all inclined sleepers from the marketplace, including gliders, rockers, swings and bassinets.
