Boppy Lounger Recalled After Infant Deaths
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled a popular infant lounger that’s been on shelves since 2004. The Boppy Lounger has sold over 3.3 million units since that time. Despite its popularity, the CPSC is recalling the product after discovering eight instances of infant deaths associated with the lounger. “Infants can suffocate if they roll, move, or are placed on the lounger in a position that obstructs breathing, or roll off the lounger onto an external surface, such as an adult pillow or soft bedding that obstructs breathing,” the CPSC says.
Boppy Products Included in the Recall
Loungers and pillows can be incredibly dangerous for infants. Though not designed with sleep in mind, babies may drift off while using the Boppy and suffocate in the fabric. Multiple Boppy loungers have been recalled because of suffocation hazards:
- Boppy Original Newborn Loungers
- Boppy Preferred Newborn Loungers
- Pottery Barn Kids Boppy Newborn Loungers
These products were sold in stores and online from companies like Target, Amazon, Walmart, and Pottery Barn Kids. If you have one of these loungers in your home, discontinue use immediately and contact the manufacturer for a refund.
