In Australia, a baby sleeper has been withdrawn related to more than 30 child deaths in the US.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission will work with Mattel's Fisher Price to recall the company's Rock & # 39; s Play baby sleepers, a spokeswoman for ACCC said on Saturday afternoon.
The announcement followed the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, which recalled 4.7 million Fisher-Price Rock & # 39; N Play sleeper-parents should stop using the product immediately.

"Mattel has confirmed to the ACCC today that it will conduct a voluntary recall of Fisher Price Rock in Australia," the consumer watchdog said in a statement.
"The ACCC will work with Mattel to release the recall as soon as possible."
A recent study found that since the launch of the product in 2009, 32 infants have died using sleep.
"At Rock & # 39; N Play Sleepers, infants have died after babies are rolled from their backs to the stomach or to the sides while they are uninhibited or under other circumstances," said the US Consumers Agency.
Australia's Safe Sleep Guidelines state that a baby must be placed on its back to sleep on a firm, clean, and flat mattress that has no loose beds or other items.
