"Since the 2009 product introduction, over 30 infant fatalities have occurred in Rock 'n Play Sleepers", it said. The recall covers about 4.7 million of the sleepers, which cost between $40 and $149. "Stores should remove the "Rock 'N Play Sleeper" from their shelves".

The safety commission's recall notes that babies have rolled from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained in the product.

The AAP cited a report by United States magazine website Consumer Reports, which linked the product to 32 separate infant deaths.

The CPSC and Fisher-Price had issued the warning last week that the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play can be unsafe for children who have exhibited the ability to roll over.

"While this recall is specific to the Rock "n Play, there are other inclined and padded sleeping products on the market that can put infants" safety at risk". "The Rock 'n Play inclined sleeper should be removed from the market immediately. A warning issued by the CPSC and Fisher-Price on April 5 did not go far enough to ensure safety and protect infants".

Consumer Reports put the number of infant deaths associated with the sleeper as high as 32

A warning from the Consumer Product Safety Commission has turned into a recall.

Earlier this week, the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP) urged the product's recall, labelling the sleeper "deadly". "We continue to work closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission regarding the safe use of our products, including the Rock 'n Play Sleeper".

Some studies have suggested that babies that sleeping on their backs have a lower chance of dying from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). They asked customers to stop using the popular baby sleeper if their children are able to roll over, which infants typically begin to do around three months.

The AAP does not recommend any sleeping products for infants or any products that require restraining a baby.

Marta Tellado, president and CEO of Consumer Reports, said, "The Fisher-Price recall of the Rock "n Play is long overdue".
