The Consumer Product Safety Commission is urging parents to stop using the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleepers as the death toll continues to rise despite the 2019 recall.
The sleeper was recalled in April of 2019 after it was linked to 30 infant deaths.
According to reports, infants placed in the sleeper unrestrained were able to roll from their backs to their stomachs or sides causing them to suffocate.
In some cases, infants were restrained but were still able to change their positions in the sleeper.
Consumers were urged to stop using the sleepers typically sold at major retailers immediately and seek a refund from Fisher-Price.
On Monday, however, the safety commission revealed that 70 more infant deaths have been attributed to the product following the recall.
Only eight of those deaths took place just after the initial recall announcement.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a renewed recall for the sleeper, the Rock ‘n Play, and the Kids2 Rocking Sleepers.
