Despite a federal recall nearly four years ago, the sleepers remain in use

Illinois' Attorney General is warning parents to be aware of dangers of two rocking sleeper devices that have been linked to infant deaths.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission first issued recalls on the Fisher-Price and Kids II Rocking Sleepers back in 2019 - but 12 babies have died in the sleepers since then.

Attorney General Kwame Raoul says there are vouchers and refunds for the affected items - he says parents and caregivers should carefully check their homes and businesses to make sure they don't have the sleepers, and if they do, stop using them.
