  • Fisher-Price told Consumer Reports in the 2019 report about the investigation that it knew of around 32 deaths, but it did not think that “any deaths have been caused by the product,” pointing to “the many situations where a medical/health condition was identified as the cause of death, and/or those in which the product was clearly used in a manner contrary to the safety warnings and instructions.”
  • Early last year, Consumer Reports reported that dozens of people who bought the sleeper were suing Fisher-Price and parent company Mattel, claiming that they were never notified about the recall. 
  • It’s common for companies to get low responses for recalls on items, but the situation was especially concerning.
