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. (More Fisher-Price stories.)
