Boppy Baby Pillow Recall

Posted on October 7, 2021

The Boppy Co. has voluntarily recalled over 3 million of its popular baby loungers after eight infants died from suffocation. The infant deaths occurred between December 2015 and June 2020.

Per the Consumer Product Safety Commission, loungers and pillow-like products are not safe for infant sleep. “Infants can suffocate if they roll, move or are placed in the lounger in a position that obstructs breathing,” noted the CPSC. The agency advises that babies should sleep on their backs on a firm, flat surface without blankets, pillows, and padded crib bumpers. The Boppy Co. maintained that its loungers were not intended for infant sleep or unsupervised use.

The recall affects Boppy Original Newborn Loungers, Boppy Preferred Newborn Loungers and Pottery Barn Kids Boppy Newborn Loungers. The loungers were sold between January 2004 and September 2021 online at Amazon.com and at retailers including Pottery Barn Kids, Target and Walmart. Measuring 23 by 22 inches and 7 inches high, the loungers were priced from $30 to $44.

Parents and caregivers should immediately stop using the Boppy loungers. They may contact the Boppy Co. for a refund at https://www.boppy.com/pages/loungerrecall or by calling 800-416-1355 during business hours.
