“Congress must immediately repeal the gag rule,” Trumka said in a release separate from Tuesday's product warning. “If CPSC cannot issue timely warnings, dangers will remain hidden in people’s homes.”
A new rule finalized by the CPSC requires that infant sleep products have a sleep surface angle of 10 degrees or less. The rule goes into effect on June 23, 2022.
Fisher-Price and the CPSC said the best place for infants to sleep is on their back on a firm, flat surface without blankets or other objects near them.
Fisher-Price has sold more than 17 million Rockers worldwide since the 1990s.
