NEW YORK (KKTV) - Parents across the country need to be aware of a major recall impacting a popular product for children that has been attributed to more than two dozen deaths.

Fisher-Price is recalling nearly 5 million infant sleepers after more than 30 babies rolled over in them and died since the product was introduced in 2009.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says that anyone who bought any models of the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play sleeper should stop using it right away and contact Fisher-Price for a refund.

The recall comes a week after the CPSC warned people not to use the sleepers for infants older than three months old, since they are more likely to roll over.
