Currently the CPSC and Fisher-Price are only warning consumers to stop using the rocker as soon as infants can roll over.
They say consumers have still been using the product past 3 months old, which could result in death.
CPSC and Fisher-Price are reminding consumers to create a safe sleep environment for infants, whether using a crib, bassinet, play yard, or inclined sleeper.
