Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper - Potential to Develop Mould

The following notice is from HSW:


 Mould can develop on Fisher Price Newborn Rock 'N Play Sleepers posing a potential health hazard
Health Canada reports that mould can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the Fisher Price Newborn Rock 'N Play Sleeper. While mould is not present when the product is purchased, it can grow when the product remains wet or moist, or is cleaned infrequently, exposing infants sleeping in the Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper to mould.

Health Canada considers mould growth to be a potential health hazard as it can lead to breathing problems and allergy symptoms for some people. Infants, pregnant women, the elderly and those with health problems, such as respiratory disease or a weakened immune system, are more at risk when exposed to mould.

See HSW Products tab for specifics on the affected item.

 This product has not been sold in Canada since March 2011

Corrective Action:•Consumers should immediately check for mould under the removable seat cushion.
•If mould is found consumers should immediately stop using the product.
