Pediatricians and grieving parents have been calling for it to happen for years, and on Friday it finally did.
All models of the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play sleeper have been recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced.
The CPSC says parents "should immediately stop using the product and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher".
The recall follows a long-simmering controversy and a Consumer Reports investigation into the Rock n'Play.
More than 30 babies have died in Rock 'n Play Sleepers since 2009 (some were restrained and some were not) and hundreds of injuries have been reported. Facing mounting pressure from the public, the recall has finally been issued.
