Local consignment shop pulling recalled infant sleepers

Posted at 9:51 PM, Apr 13, 2019

COLORADO SPRINGS – A pop-up consignment shop is pulling a child sleeper off their shelves after a nationwide recall.

It’s called the Rock ‘n Play Sleeper sold by Fisher-Price.
The Federal Consumer Product Safety Commission is linking the product to more than 30 infant deaths in 10 years.

The commission says infants can roll over while unrestrained.
The Just Between Friends pop-up consignment shop stopped accepting the sleepers Wednesday, though Fischer-Price and the commission officially announced their recall on Friday.
The shop has a recall specialist who pointed them out so they could be pulled off the shelves immediately.

“The consigners actually dropped them off, and the recall hadn’t happened yet,” said Laura Staggs, the owner of Just Between Friends.
“So they dropped them off, we put them up for sale and we immediately pulled them from the sales floor.”

Consigners have the option of picking the sleeper up for a full refund from Fischer-Price.
For all other items, the JBF shop typically gives back 60 to 70 percent of profits to the consigners.
Currently, they’re also selling other items like clothes and toys.

Sunday is the last day the shop will be open for a 75-percent off day.
It’s located on Palmer Park Boulevard.
