Fisher-Price has withdrawn 71,000 angled sleeping accessories from the market because they can cause babies to roll from their backs to their stomachs, risking injury or death.
No babies & # 39; s died on the recently called Fisher-Price Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play stack.
But 32 baby deaths are linked to similar products, including the Fisher-Price Rock & Playper sleepers, of which five million were recalled in April.
The move marks the complete exit of the American toy and baby product company from the sale of oblique sleep products.
Fisher-Price has taken 71,000 Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard oblique sleeper accessories out of the market because they can cause babies to roll from their backs to their stomachs, risking injury or death
Fisher-Price said that the actual playground, the interchangeable station-coupling accessory and the carrying case were not recalled and that consumers could use them safely
Fisher-Price said in a statement on his website that it proactively approached the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to initiate a voluntary recall of the oblique sleep accessory.
& # 39; At Fisher-Price, safety is our top priority and we work hard every day to win the trust of parents and caregivers & # 39 ;, said the company in a statement on its website.
& # 39; As part of this commitment, we proactively approached the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to initiate a voluntary recall of the oblique sleep accessory on all models of the Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard, due to concerns about the safety of inclined sleep products. & # 39;
The statement continued: & # 39; We have initiated this voluntary recall, even though there are no reported injuries or fatal accidents with this product. & # 39;
Fisher-Price said that the actual playground, the interchangeable station-coupling accessory and the carrying case were not recalled and that consumers could use them safely.
But it instructed consumers to stop using the accessory that is on top of the box to turn it into a sloping bed, and to contact the company for a refund or voucher.
The recall includes the oblique sleep support sold with all Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards with model numbers CBV60, CHP86, CHR06, CJK24 and DJD11, the CPSC said.
Owners can find the model number on the textile label in the box and on the back of the sloping sleeping mat.
The CPSC said the recall relates to around 71,000 products made in China.
The recall comes two months after Fisher-Price has recalled all its sleepers that Rock N & # 39; Play inclined after being linked to more than 30 infant deaths.

Fisher-Price tweeted about his voluntary recall of oblique sleep products for babies
In April, US officials and Fisher-Price asked parents not to use the Rock & # 39; n Play sleeper after 30 baby deaths in ten years
& # 39; Since the 2009 product launch, more than 30 baby fatalities have occurred in Rock & # 39; n Play pants, after the & # 39; s baby had rolled up while living unrestrained, or under other circumstances & # 39 ;, said the recall on April 12.
That covered about 4.7 million of sleepers, which cost between $ 40 and $ 149.
& # 39; This product is fatal and must be recalled immediately, & # 39; Dr. stated Kyle Yasuda, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, at the time.
& # 39; When parents buy a product for their baby or child, many assume that if it is sold in a store, it must be safe to use. Unfortunately that is not the case. There is convincing evidence that Rock & Play's slanted sleeping place is endangering baby's life, and CPSC needs to step up and take immediate action to remove it from stores and prevent further tragedies. & # 39;
Nearly 700,000 obliquely placed sleepers made by Kids II – who were tied to five dead – were recalled shortly after Rock & Play.
At least five babies died when they rolled from their backs to their stomachs while using the sleepers.
Safe sleeping is always a top priority for new parents.
An oblique sleep position allows babies & # 39; s to sleep at an angle of about 30 degrees.
Some studies have suggested that babies who sleep on their back have a lower chance of dying of cot death (SIDS).
Doctors advise parents to place babies on their backs in cribs, basins, or other children's beds, but by the time babies are around three months old, they can turn themselves around – and they might do so in their sleep.
A baby who sleeps on his stomach can choke much more easily if they vomit milk.
More importantly, if they sleep high somewhere and without any barrier around them, babies that fall over may fall.
Elevated rockers and basinets contain warnings that babies are always stuck in the seat.
