Popular Infant Sleepers Recalled Over Suffocation Risks

— February 5, 2020

The CPSC is recalling four brands of infant sleepers over concerns they pose a suffocation hazard.

Last year a variety of Rock ‘N Play infant sleepers were recalled over concerns that they pose a suffocation risk for infants, and now the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced a similar recall for four more brands of infant sleepers over the same concerns. The recalled brands include Summer Infant, Evenflo, Graco, and Delta Enterprise Corp. In total, about 165,000 sleepers are included in the recall.

Fortunately, there have been no reports of infant fatalities in connection with the affected sleepers. However, between January 2005 and June 2019 the CPSC “received reports of 1,108 incidents, including 73 infant deaths, related to other infant-inclined sleep products.” When commenting on recalls involving inclined infant sleepers, the American Academy of Pediatrics said “infants younger than one-year-old should sleep on their backs on a firm surface to avoid suffocation.”

According to the notice, the following infant sleepers are included in the recall:
