SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Fisher-Price announced Friday that it's recalling all 4.7 million of its Rock 'n Play Sleepers, after the product was linked to the deaths of over 30 infants in the last 10 years.

The Consumer Safety Product Commission said that the deaths occurred "after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances" in the Rock 'n Play Sleeper. 

The recall comes a week after Fisher-Price and the commission issued a safety warning about the product. But grieving parents and the American Academy of Pediatrics felt a warning was not enough, and pressured for a recall.
