What are the defects?

Product is potentially dangerous if used without restraining the infant with the safety harness. Infants may roll from their backs to their stomach or side while unrestrained.

Over 30 infant fatalities have occurred overseas, since 2009, in Rock ‘n Play Sleepers, after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances.

Around 4,000 units were supplied in Australia between 1 Jan 2010 and 31 Dec 2013.

What are the hazards?

There is a risk of suffocation if infants roll from their back to their stomach or side while unrestrained, which can result in severe injury or death.

What should consumers do?

Parents and carers should stop using the product immediately and contact Mattel for a refund. Email infoaust@mattel.com or phone on 1300 135 312 (6:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Melbourne time Mon – Fri).

Mattel will then provide instructions about how to make the product unusable.
