A new recall announcement concerns a favorite product for new parents.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recalling about 800,000 "Rock 'n Play" sleepers by Fisher-Price, because it has been reported that mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame.
Fisher-Price has gotten 600 reports of mold and 16 infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs, and hives.
The CPSC says parents should check for dark brown, gray, or black spots that can indicate the presence of mold.
If found, parents should contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions and further assistance.
Mold growth only occurs with use, so items still in stores are safe.
We're getting rain well ahead of our cold front. Expect to need that umbrella on and off all day and tonight, too. A bit messy, unfortunately, for First Friday activities.
With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. A light coating could occur for some before a changeover to rain. Stay tuned!
