Jan. 30, 2020 -- Federal officials this week announced the recall of 165,000 inclined infant sleepers after multiple reports of babies suffocating to death.

The recalls come 9 months after the Consumer Product Safety Commission, along with manufacturer Fisher-Price, said 10 infants, age 3 months or older, died in the company’s Rock ’n Play sleeper since 2015. Two months ago, the commission also said no infant incline sleeper is safe.

The current recall involves four companies and includes these products:

  • Delta Enterprise Corp. has recalled multiple products: Beautyrest Beginnings Incline Sleeper with Adjustable Feeding Position for Newborns; Disney Baby Minnie Mouse Incline Sleeper with Adjustable Feeding Position for Newborns; Delta Children Deluxe 3-in-1 Activity Rocker, Feeder and Sleeper; Simmons Kids Beautyrest Deluxe 3-in-1 Activity Rocker, Feeder, and Sleeper; 3-in-1 Activity Rocker, Feeder and Incline Sleeper; and others.

Anyone with one of these products is eligible for a refund.

  • Evenflo has recalled its Pillo Portable Napper and is offering refunds.
  • Summer Infant has recalled its SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper and is offering refunds.
  • And Graco has recalled 110,000 Graco Little Lounger Rocking Seats and is offering refunds.
