(ABC4) – After four infant deaths were reported, Fisher-Price is recalling multiple gliders.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Fisher-Price are recalling the 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers and 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders.
According to the recall, the four infants that died were reportedly on their backs in a 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Scooter, unrestrained, and were later found on their stomachs. The deaths occurred between April 2019 and February 2020 and involved a 4-month old from Missouri, a 2-month old from Nevada, a 2-month old from Michigan, and an 11-week old from Colorado.
There have been no fatalities in the 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders.
Below is a list of the products included in the recall:
- 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soothers
- 2-in-1 Soothe ‘n Play Gliders
CPSC reports the products have two use modes – a powered glider seat and an infant rocker. In both modes, the product can move in a head-to-toe or side-to-side motion. You can find the model number on the underside of the base.
