Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 13, 2019

Fisher-Price's Recall Statement: Questions have been raised about the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper -- that's why today, we are announcing a voluntary recall of all units of the product. While we continue to stand by the safety of all of our products, given the reported incidents in which the product was used contrary to safety warnings and instructions, we've decided in partnership with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), that this voluntary recall is the best course of action. Consumers should stop using the Rock 'n Play Sleeper and can contact Fisher-Price immediately for a refund or voucher.

Took them long enough before they decided to act.

From the cited article:

...Earlier this week, the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) urged the product's recall, labelling the sleeper "deadly"....

Good thing questions were raised, right? Otherwise they would just continue to sell these death traps.

30 "linked" deaths out of 4,700,000 sold?

I wonder how many of those deaths were CAUSED by the product.

One infant death is a horrible tragedy for the family, but 30 out of 4.7M is a pretty small percentage.

I prefer products that kill zero babies.
