(CNN) – Fisher-Price and parent company Mattel are now facing class action lawsuits over the recalled Rock ‘n Play sleepers and infant deaths tied to the product.

It comes less than two weeks after Fisher-Price recalled 4.7 million of the sleepers on April 12.

A week earlier, Fisher-Price and the Consumer Product Safety Commission put out a warning after 10 babies died.

Families are seeking unspecified damages.
