Parents Warned to Check Infant Sleeper for Mold

Updated:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has a warning for parents about an infant sleeper on the market.

It's called the Newborn Rock 'N Play Sleeper and it's made by Fisher-Price.

THE CPSC says parents need to inspect the sleeper to see if mold has developed between the seat and frame.

Sixteen babies have been treated for coughs and other respiratory illnesses after using the sleeper.

Experts say the problems is that mold develops if the area between the sleeper seat and frame remains wet or is not cleaned often.
     
They say consumers should look for dark brown, gray or black spots under the seat cushion that could be mold -- and if they find it, stop using the product.

 


 

January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month.

The National Cancer Institute says virtually all cervical cancers are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which is often spread by sexual contact.

Experts say all women should begin cervical cancer screening about three years after they first become sexually active.

Many doctors recommend girls and boys ages 11 and older get vaccinated against HPV.
