This is a voluntary recall to inspect the product due to risk of exposure to mold. According to complaints received by customers, mold can develop under the removable seat cover and the hard plastic "when it remains wet/moist or is infrequently cleaned" and this poses the risk of exposure of mold to infants sleeping in the product. Fisher-Price has received over 600 reports of mold and 16 reports of infants needed treatment for respiratory issues, coughs and hives as a result.
Fisher-Price is requesting that all customers who have this product should immediately check for mold under the removable seat cover. Dark brown, gray or black spots can indicate the presence of mold. If mold is found, consumers should immediately stop using the product. Consumers can contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions or further assistance. Read more about the recall here
I personally own one of these and do not fully understand this recall. Just like all of our baby gear we frequently wash the cover and clean the frame and have never noticed any mold. The cover is very easy to remove and really should be washed often especially if it gets wet for any reason. In my humble opinion I think mold forming on the frame would really be the fault of the user not using or cleaning the product properly.
