Product • Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper, sold at mass-merchandise stores nationwide and online since September 2009 for $50 to $85.

Problem • Mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper when it remains wet/moist or is infrequently cleaned, posing a risk of exposure to mold to infants sleeping in the product. Consumers can contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions or further assistance.

Problem • The vehicles may have been built with a fractured park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly.
