Graco has recalled 51,000 inclined infant sleepers after noting that similar products made by other companies have caused injuries and deaths to babies due to suffocation.
If your child or the child of a loved one suffered a serious injury or death in a Graco sleeper, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. If so, contact Kline & Specter, which has more than 40 attorneys, including five who are also highly skilled medical doctors — the most in the United States — and among them two OB-GYNs.
Our law firm has won record results in product liability lawsuits against major manufacturers and our lawyers have already filed a dozen lawsuits against the makers of inclined baby sleepers.
Inclined baby sleepers present a suffocation hazard because babies may roll from their backs to their stomachs or sides while unrestrained. The products also present a risk of airway compression as they allow infants to rest their heads forward, blocking airflow.
The specific products recalled by Graco are the Graco Pack ‘n Play Day2Dream Playard with Bedside Sleeper, Graco Pack ‘n Play Nuzzle Nest Playard, Graco Pack ‘n Play Everest Playard and Graco Pack ‘n Play Rock ‘n Grow Playard.
While no serious injuries have been officially reported involving Graco inclined sleepers, the company said it was conducting the recall because of problems noted with similar products made by other manufacturers, including sleepers made by Fisher-Price that have been linked to 93 reported infant deaths.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which reported the recall, said parents and caregivers should immediately stop using Graco inclined sleepers. The sleepers, which were made in China, were sold through many stores nationwide, including Babies R Us. Sales of the sleepers, which went for between $270 and $350, have been stopped.
In late 2019, Fisher-Price recalled 4.7 million Rock 'n Play Sleepers and Kids II also recalled 700,000 inclined infant sleepers.
