Fisher Price recalled about 71,000 inclined sleeper accessories included with all models of the Fisher-Price Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yards.

The company said in a statement it decided to recall the accessories after similar products had been linked to infant deaths.

Fisher Price said there have been no reported injuries or fatalities involving its inclined sleepers.

Fisher Price said consumers should stop using the inclined sleeper accessory immediately and can contact the company for a refund or voucher.

The play yard itself, the changing station clutch accessory and the carry bag are not being recalled and can continue to be used by consumers.

For more information, consumers can visit Fisher-Price at www.service.mattel.com and click on “Recalls & Safety Alerts” or call 800-432-5437.

The recall was issued in conjunction with the Consumer Safety Product Commission.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
