10. The Defendants marketed, advertised, and sold the Rock ‘n Play as a product that infants could be placed in or sleep in when the Defendants knew or should have known that placing infants in a bassinet with the degree of incline and design of the Rock ‘n Play could cause infants to suffer catastrophic injuries or death.

11. Before and during their sale and marketing of the Rock ‘n Play, the Defendants knew or should have known that the defective and unreasonably dangerous design of the Rock ‘n Play could cause infants to asphyxiate because the angle or incline of the Rock ‘n Play caused infants’ airways to be blocked, caused infants to be lying at a dangerous incline and angle, caused infants to assume positions that cause suffocation, asphyxiation, and/or death, and caused infants to become stuck in positions in which they were unable to breathe.

12. In marketing and advertising the Rock ‘n Play, the Defendants provided Rock ‘n Plays to mothers, for free, in exchange for these mothers writing favorable reviews that praised the Rock ‘n Play as a safe and effective product for infant sleep.
