China made Boppy is parents worst nightmare, recalled after 8 infant deaths
Baby gear brand Boppy issued a voluntary recall this week after its infant lounger cushion was linked to eight deaths. In all cases, the infants suffocated after falling asleep on the lounger.
Boppy executives said they were “devastated” to hear of the deaths, but confirmed that the infant lounger is not marketed for sleeping and does carry a warning against unsupervised use.
“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,” warns the company on its website.
Boppy’s recall affects roughly 3.3 million loungers that were sold in the United States and Canada at Walmart, Amazon, Target, and Pottery Barn Kids. Parents have been encouraged to contact Boppy directly for a full refund.
“Since we know that infants sleep so much of the time – even in products not intended for sleep – and since suffocation can happen so quickly, these Boppy lounger products are simply too risky to remain on the market,” said Boppy executive Robert S. Adler.
Sadly, the infant lounger isn’t Boppy’s first recall.
In 2019, the company recalled a head/neck support accessory for strollers and swings after the company received reports of babies’ heads being pushed too far forward by overstuffed items.
As noted on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website, the product was manufactured in China.
