The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Boppy Company have just recalled over 3 million of their "new born lounger" infant pillows due to suffocation risk after 8 babies have lost their lives.

The recall effects 3 of their product offerings; Boppy Original Newborn Loungers, Boppy Preferred Newborn Loungers and Pottery Barn Kids Boppy Newborn Loungers.

The issue arises when infants roll or move and that puts them in a position that obstructs the child's breathing. There have also been reports of infants rolling off the lounger onto a different surface or pillow that can suffocate the child.

According to the recall notice, the infants that died were placed on their back, side or stomach on the lounger. The 8 infant deaths that occurred, happened between 2015-2020.

The recalled loungers were sold at multiple stores nationwide and also online. Some of the retailers include, Pottery Barn Kids, Target, and Walmart and online at Amazon.com. The loungers were sold from January 2004 through September 2021.

If you have or know someone who has a Boppy Lounger, the CPSC requests that you immediately stop using the recalled loungers and contact The Boppy Company for a refund.

The Boppy Company can be reached toll-free at 800-416-1355 or online at www.boppy.com and click “Recall & Safety Alert” for more information and how to get a refund.
