A new recall announcement concerns a favorite product for new parents.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recalling about 800,000 "Rock 'n Play" sleepers by Fisher-Price, because it has been reported that mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame.
Fisher-Price has gotten 600 reports of mold and 16 infants have been treated for respiratory issues, coughs, and hives.
The CPSC says parents should check for dark brown, gray, or black spots that can indicate the presence of mold.
If found, parents should contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions and further assistance.
Mold growth only occurs with use, so items still in stores are safe.
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
