Fisher-Price issued a recall of 4.7 million Rock 'n Play Sleepers Friday after multiple infants were found to have died while the product was in use. In these instances, infants who were not in restraints rolled over in the Rock 'n Play.
"Since the 2009 product introduction, over 30 infant fatalities have occurred in Rock 'n Play Sleepers, after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances", the notice said.
Fisher-Price is encouraging everyone to stop using the Rock 'n Plays now.
TODAY'S TMJ4 reached out to the Consumer Product Safety Commission on Friday, asking why the voluntary recall was decided. All 10 deaths associated with the sleepers were of infants older than 3 months.

Clarke stood up in the audience and asked if he could at least share "a sense of how it ends". Harrington famously plays Jon Snow on GOT , the noble, stupidly sexy King of the North.
Fisher-Price recalled almost five million infant sleepers on Friday, after more than 30 babies died in them over a 10-year period. Fisher-Price will issue a refund.
CPSC and Fisher-Price also reminded parents to "create a safe sleep environment" and never add blankets, pillows, stuffed toys, or other items to the Rock 'n Play.
"This product is deadly and should be recalled immediately", Kyle Yasuda, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said in the news release. "Stores should remove the "Rock 'N Play Sleeper" from their shelves".
Patty Davis, a spokeswoman with CPSC, had said the commission was aware of the report of additional fatalities and were looking into those deaths. In its initial statement, Fisher-Price said the product "meets all applicable safety standards, including those of the worldwide standards organization, known as ASTM global, and is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association (JPMA)". It also advises against using vehicle seats, strollers or other devices for sleeping due to the risk of rollover leading to possible suffocation or strangulation.
