The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fisher-Price issued a joint warning Friday about the latter's Rock 'n Play Sleeper, reporting that at least 10 infants older than three months have died by rolling over in the product since 2015.

It includes a harness, but the notice said the deaths came in incidents where the infants rolled over without restraints.

"A child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy", Scothon said.

On its website, Fisher-Price said the company "will continue to work closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and other global regulators, to encourage the safe use of our products and find ways to keep your little ones happy, healthy and above all - safe".

"We continue to work closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission regarding the safe use of our products, including the Rock 'n Play Sleeper".

She said they are now investigating the cot. It has no commercial relationship with any advertiser or sponsor on this site.
