About 800,000 Fisher-Price infant sleepers are being recalled because they could risk babies being exposed to mold, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Tuesday.

Officials said mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper when it stays wet or is infrequently cleaned.

Mold has been associated with respiratory illnesses and infections, the agency said.

Fisher-Price has received 600 reports of mold and 16 consumers have reported having their infants treated for respiratory issues, coughs and hives after sleeping in the product, the CPSC said.

Consumers should check the product for mold under the removable seat cushion. Stop using the product if mold is found.

Cleaning and care instructions can be found at www.service.mattel.com. Consumers can also call 800-432-5437 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for more information.
