The recalled Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play sleeper. This could lead to suffocation or strangulation.
While it has been noted that many of these deaths occured while the baby was not properly restrained - as instructed explicitly by the product instruction manual - the American Academy of Pediatrics argues that products with restraints shouldn't be used for sleeping in the first place.

Fisher-Price had warned customers to stop using the sleeper once infants can roll over.
