(Newser) – Fisher-Price has issued a recall for more than 800,000 of its Rock N' Play Infant Sleepers due to a rather icky problem. The baby seat is prone to develop mold underneath its removable cloth cushion if the seat remains wet or goes uncleaned, reports the AP. So far, 600 cases of mold have been reported and 16 infants have received treatment for issues related to mold, including coughing, hives, and respiratory problems. Parents who spot mold on the seats should stop using the product and contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions.

Better recall all clothing, bedding, towels, shoot - any textile... if you don't clean and let damp stuff sit around, guess what? Mold! WTF - sissy nation.

What kind of idiot makes a company recall a product because the people who buy and use it have poor hygeine. What's next, a toilet paper recall because after it is used it gets sh!tty, or maybe an underwear recall because if you wear the same pair for a month and don't wash them you may get a UTI?
