Muscat: Nearly 5 million Rock N Play sleepers produced by toy manufacturer Fisher-Price have been recalled after more than 30 infants died. The sleepers, a soft cradle that vibrates, are used to put babies to sleep.

The announcement comes after an investigation by Consumer Reports indicated that 32 deaths were tied to the rockers.

"This product is unsafe and I urge parents and caregivers to stop using it right away", said Ben Hoffman, M.D., chairperson of AAP's Council on Injury, Violence, and Poison Prevention Executive Committee.

It said the recall involves all Rock 'n Play Sleepers - about 4.7 million products.

The products are manufactured in China and sells at $40 to $149 in major retailers. The company says these fatalities occurred after infants rolled over while unrestrained and under other circumstances.

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

"We can not put any more children's lives at risk by keeping these unsafe products on the shelves", Rachel Moon, MD, FAAP, chair of the AAP Task Force on SIDS, said earlier in the week.

"I urge consumers to report any incidents with inclined sleepers or other nursery products to CPSC at saferproducts.gov", she said in a video statement.

"Fisher-Price and Mattel, their parent company, we are in negotiations to discuss kind of what we expect from talking about and speaking out on the dangers of this chair", Evan Overton said. There have been 10 infant deaths already involved.

More information is available on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

The AAP does not recommend any sleeping products for infants or any products that require restraining a baby.

Fisher-Price called the deaths "an unimaginable tragedy".
