Parents Should Stop Using Rock n’ Play Sleepers Right Away

Now, under pressure from pediatricians and the Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC), Fischer Price and parent company Mattel have announced a recall of the product. About 4.7 million sleepers have been recalled, and any parent using the Rock n’ Play should stop doing so immediately.

Product Liability Claims
Companies like Fischer Price have the duty to ensure their products are safe for consumers. This means the following:
- Products must be free of design defects
- Products must be properly assembled according to the design and using adequate materials
- Products must come with all necessary warnings of possible risks
When a company fails to meet any of the above standards, people can get hurt if the product malfunctions or if they do not fully understand the risks of using the product.
Numerous people often suffer injuries from a product before a company will issue a recall. Some consumers may not learn of a recall and may continue using a dangerous product. When injuries or deaths happen, manufacturers should be held liable for all losses of victims and their families. This includes medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, wrongful death, and more.
