Fisher-Price announced that it has decided to voluntarily recall its Rock ‘n Play Sleeper.

The product, which can cost between $50 and $150 dollars, has come under scrutiny after reportedly being linked to the death of more than 30 infants.

The recall covers almost 5 million sleepers.

Consumers concerned if their product is include in the recall or who are looking to receive a refund for their product should contact Fisher-Price/Mattel or visit the recall information webpage at https://service.mattel.com/us/recall/default.asp?recall_id=52466

Consumers who have owned the Fisher-Price Rock ‘N Play Sleeper for 6 months or less will receive a full cash refund for the suggested retail price. Consumers who have owned the product for longer than 6 months will receive a voucher to redeem a new Fisher-Price product.
