Yesterday the CPSC and the FDA issued a joint statement warning parents not to use sleep positioners for their babies. They say that 12 infants have suffocated and died while using them over the past 13 years but it's unclear what prompted the timing of this warning or whether these products will be officially recalled.

The warning applies to both flat and inclined mats with side bolsters.

Read the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) press release on sleep positioners.
