By Susan Lasser, J.D.

Consumers are instructed to stop using the Graco Little Lounger Rocking Seat™ immediately and to contact the manufacturer for a refund or voucher.

Graco Children’s Products Inc., of Atlanta, Georgia, is recalling about 111,000 Graco Little Lounger Rocking Seats because infant fatalities have been reported with other manufacturers’ inclined sleep products after infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side, or under other circumstances. In addition to these Graco Rocking Seats which were sold in the United States, an additional 1,800 units were sold in Mexico and are included in this recall (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 20-062, January 29, 2020).

Incidents and injuries. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

Product description. The Graco Little Lounger Rocking Seat™ is two products in one—a rocking seat and a vibrating lounger.

The model number is located on a label on one of the metal legs.
