A federal judicial panel has bounced 15 lawsuits to New York over this year’s recall of 4.7 million Rock ‘n Play infant sleepers sold by Fisher-Price Inc.

Thursday’s order, by the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, comes on the same day that the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that another company, Dorel Juvenile Group, had recalled 24,000 Eddie Bauer and Disney infant sleepers.
