Fischer Price has announced a recall of its Newborn Rock N' Play Sleeper. This product poses a risk to consumers because mold can accumulated in the plastic of the device if it becomes wet and is not frequently cleaned. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has stated that mold is not present at the time the device is sold, but it develops after use. Mold is particularly dangerous to younger people because of the health risks it imposes if inhaled. The risks associated with breathing in mold include cough and hives. Consumers should check their Rock N' Play Sleepers for any dark or brown spots between the cloth seat and the hard plastic of the device. If mold is discovered, consumers should contact Fischer Price for details on the recall. The sleeper does come with cleaning instructions, and those instructions are also available on the company's website.

Around 800,000 of these units were sold in the United States. Thus far, the company has received over 600 reports of mold in the product. Out of these reports, sixteen infants have been treated for respiratory problems. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is still investigating the product.

Concerns over products sold in the United States have prompted many sleepless nights for consumers. Parents in particular have been increasingly concerned with the quality and safety of products marketed towards infants and smaller children. Recently, there have been many recalls based on dangerous elements being placed in products. These recalls have prompted many consumers to avoid purchasing products manufactured in China because many of today's recalls are from products manufactured there.
