Product Description: Boppy Infant Head and Neck Support Accessory
The current recall includes Boppy Infant Head and Neck Support Accessories in the Ebony Floral and Heathered Gray styles. These accessories are used in infant swings, strollers and bouncers. The model numbers include 4150114 and 4150117.
Why the Boppy Accessories Were Recalled
While there are no reported injuries as of now, Boppy did receive three reports of the product pushing infants’ heads towards their chests while in use. This poses a possible suffocation hazard.
How To Tell If Your Accessory Was Recalled
Parents should look for the model numbers 4150114 and 4150117, which are printed on the back of the head support’s fabric label. The recalled products were sold for $20 at Target, Buy Buy Baby, Amazon and other retailers from March through May 2019.
