Update: Boppy Recalls 3 Million Newborn Loungers Over Suffocation Risk
On September 23, 2021, The Boppy Company issued a recall for 3.3 million Boppy Original Newborn Loungers, Boppy Preferred Newborn Loungers and Pottery Barn Kids Target Loungers after the company received at least 8 reports of infant deaths associated with the products.
The babies suffocated after being placed on their back, side or stomach in the Boppy lounger and were found on their side or on their stomach, the Boppy Company said. The infant deaths occurred between December 2015 and June 2020.
This recall affects all Boppy Newborn Loungers. The loungers were sold in a variety of colors and fashions and measure about 23 inches long by 22 inches wide and 7 inches high.
The recalled Boppy loungers were sold at juvenile product stores and mass merchandisers nationwide and online, including Pottery Barn Kids, Target, and Walmart and online at Amazon.com. The loungers were sold from January 2004 through September 2021 for between $30 and $44.
If you purchased a Boppy Lounger that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact The Boppy Company for a full refund.
Boppy Nursing Pillow Recall
The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) on July 23, 2019, announced a nationwide recall for Boppy Infant Head and Neck Sport accessories which may pose a risk of strangulation to babies.
The head pillow support area of the Boppy system can be overstuffed, causing the child’s head to be tilted too far forward, posing a suffocation hazard, according to the CPSC Recall Notice.
This action applies to Boppy Head and Neck supports sold in Ebony Floral and Heathered Gray colors (model numbers 4150114, 4150117), CPSC said. The products were sold online and at children’s retailers and furniture stores.
If you purchased a head and neck supporter that is affected by the recall, you should contact Boppy for information about how to obtain a refund. This recall began on July 23, 2019.
