Kids II rocking sleeper

Five infant deaths over the last seven years has led to a nationwide recall of a sleeping rocker sold since 2012 at Target, Walmart and Toys R Us. 

There are nearly 700,000 Kids II rocking sleepers in the recall, which led to five babies dying when they rolled from their backs onto their stomachs.

"Infant fatalities have occurred in the Rocking Sleepers, after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach while unrestrained, or under other circumstances," the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says in a recall notice

The recall includes all models of Kids II sleepers – so more than the two images at the top of the story – which sold for $40-$80 over the last seven years.

Refunds or vouchers are available by contacting Kids II via their website or by phone at 866-869-7954. 

Just two weeks ago, Fisher-Price recalled approximately 4.7 million Rock 'n Play sleepers that caused 30 infant deaths in a decade-long period.
