Fisher-Price accused of selling killer sleeper

Popular toy and infant product manufacturer Fisher-Price ignored a fatal flaw in one of its hottest products, the Rock ‘n Play sleep cradle, for a decade, a new Congressional report alleges.

The deaths of more than 50 infants are reportedly involved, according to NewsJax, an independent TV news channel licensed to Jacksonville, Florida, as the company knew the dangers of its product and continued to sell it anyway.

In a two-year investigation that produced a 38-page report, House members of the Oversight and Reform committee questioned Fisher Price and its owners Mattel, The New York Post reports.

“Today’s staff report is damning. The committee’s investigation shows how corporate greed and weak federal oversight led to the deaths of dozens of babies in an unsafe product,” committee chairwoman Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-Ny) said.
