“Because deaths continue to occur, CPSC is recommending consumers stop use of the product by three months of age, or as soon as an infant exhibits rollover capabilities,” the agency’s safety alert explained.
The CPSC noted that infants typically begin rolling over at 3 months old and each of the infants who died were 3 months or older.MORE NEWS: State Fair Offers Hundreds Of Free Acts, Shows And Exhibits
