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.
Winter Weather Advisories take effect for our northwestern countines Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning. Snow will overspread the area from south to north Sunday afternoon.
The snow will bring light accumulations of 1-3" before mixing with sleet and rain by evening. Eventually the mix will become all rain.
Rain lingers into Monday morning washing away any accumulation. However, watch for icy roads Sunday night.
