Fisher-Price Warns About Mold On 800,000 Baby Seats
WASHINGTON | Tue Jan 8, 2013 10:39am EST
(Reuters) - Fisher-Price Inc has advised buyers of 800,000 infant recliner seats to stop using the seats immediately if mold is found growing on them, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.
Fisher-Price, a unit of Mattel Inc, received 600 reports of mold on its Rock 'N Play Infant Sleepers. Sixteen consumers reported infants were treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after sleeping in the product.
Consumers can call the company for cleaning instructions or further help if mold is found, it said. Seats in stores were not included in the announcement.
The Chinese-made product has been sold online and in U.S. stores since September 2009 for between $50 and $85.
clean it out of the box and make sure it`s cleaned and dried regularly. you would`t believe how fast mold grows on car seats and other padded children`s furniture. i clean my grand daughters stuff at least twice a week.
