Walmart Recalls Toy Baby Doll Due to Burns – Here’s What To Do If You Have One
Many youngsters love playing with their "babies" but one local retailer sold a baby doll that could do more than ooo and ahhh. It can cause some pretty nasty injuries!
Walmart has issued a recall on My Sweet Love/My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care baby doll (sold August 2012 - March 2014 nationwide at Walmart stores) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning parents that the toy can cause burns when the circuit board in the doll's chest overheats.
Walmart has received 12 incident reports - two of which included burns and blisters.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission:
My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby electronic baby doll comes in pink floral clothing and matching knit hat. The 16 inch doll is packaged with a toy medical check-up kit including a stethoscope, feeding spoon, thermometer and syringe. The doll's electronics cause her to babble when she gets "sick," her cheeks turn red and she starts coughing. Using the medical kit pieces cause the symptoms to stop.
According to 14 WFIE, If you have one of these dolls, look for these specific indication markings:
- "My Sweet Baby" is printed on the front of the clear plastic and cardboard packaging.
- UPC 6-04576-16800-5 and a date code which begins with WM.
- The date code is printed on the stuffed article label sewn into the bottom of the doll.
- They were sold at Walmart stores nationwide from August 2012 through March 2014.
If you have one of these dolls, immediately remove the batteries and take to your local Walmart for a refund.
