Earlier this week, Consumer Reports published an analysis on the product and said it could be linked to up to 32 infant sleeping deaths. These deaths happened after the babies rolled from their back to their stomach or side, while unrestrained.

Officials originally said there were 10 reports of infant deaths since 2015, all of whom were 3 months or older.

Fisher-Price advises consumers to immediately stop using the product and call the company for a refund or voucher.

In a statement, obtained by PEOPLE on Friday, Chuck Scothon, general manager at Fisher-Price, said a "child fatality is an unimaginable tragedy". It does not meet the AAP's recommendations for a safe sleep environment for any baby.

The city filed a 12-page civil complaint Thursday saying the city "incurred significant costs" related to the investigation. The decision to drop the charges against Smollett has led to a firestorm of criticism against State's Attorney Kim Foxx .


The recall covers about 4.7 million sleepers, which sold for between $40 and $149 since 2009. "All other inclined sleepers should be investigated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission".

The AAP, meanwhile, said it doesn't recommend children using "inclined sleep products like the Rock 'n Play, or any other products for sleep that require restraining a baby". It also advises against using auto seats, strollers or other devices for sleeping due to the risk of rollover leading to possible suffocation or strangulation. There have been 10 infant deaths already involved.
