Recalls This Week: Infant Sleepers, ATVs

By The Associated Press

About 800,000 Fisher-Price infant recliner seats were recalled this week because they are prone to gather mold when they remain wet or are not frequently cleaned. Other recalls include several types of all-terrain and off-road vehicles.

INFANT RECLINER SEATS

DETAILS: Fisher-Price Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper infant recliner seat. The sleeper is designed for babies up to 25 pounds and is composed of a soft plastic seat held by a metal rocking frame. The product has a removable, fabric cover that is sold in 14 patterns and color palettes.

WHY: Mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper when it remains wet or is infrequently cleaned, posing a risk of exposure to mold to infants sleeping in the product. Although mold is not present at the time of purchase, mold growth can occur after use.

INCIDENTS: 600 reports of mold on the product. Sixteen consumers have reported that their infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs, and hives after sleeping in the seat.

HOW MANY: About 800,000.

FOR MORE: Call Fisher-Price at 800-432-5437 or visit www.service.mattel.com for more information.

POWER SUPPLY TRANSFORMERS

DETAILS: Power Supply Transformers made by HEICO lighting, a division of EMD Technologies. They were sold at Denco Sales, Graphic Solution, Hart Supply, Interstate Electric, Montroy Supply Co., N.Glantz & Son, Pioneer Supply, Reece Supply Co., Sun Supply, and Tubelite Co. from December 2011 through May 2012. The neon power supply transformers are designed to power commercial signs. They are in black metal boxes about 4.5 inches long by 3.5 inches wide with rows of vents on all sides. "HEICO LIGHTING" and the model information are printed on a plate on the transformer.

WHY: The transformers do not meet the UL standard for this product, posing a fire risk.
