CNN-- Fisher-Price and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of 71,000 inclined-sleeper accessories for infant play yards Thursday.

Fisher-Price's decision to pull the inclined-sleeper accessory included with all models of the Ultra-Lite Day & Night Play Yard is due to safety concerns about such products, the company said in a statement.

Consumers should stop using the inclined-sleeper accessory immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher.

The play yard, changing station clutch accessory and carry bag are not part of the recall, and the company said consumers can continue using them.

There have been no reported injuries or fatalities involving this product.

An inclined sleeper allows babies to sleep at an approximately 30-degree angle, which goes against advice from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The group does not recommend inclined sleep products that require restraining a baby.

It also advises against using car seats, strollers or other devices for sleep.

The group said babies could roll or turn into an unsafe position and be suffocated or strangled when unable to move.
