A major recall is hitting some of the nation's biggest stores as the Christmas season kicks off. A popular baby product is being recalled for a potential fire hazard that could prove extremely fatal.
A recall has been issued for 63,000 Fisher-Price infant motion seats after the company received reports of the product overheating and one report of a fire, according to Today. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission urges anyone with these Fisher-Price Soothing Motion Seats to stop using them immediately.
Fisher-Price also advised anyone who uses these seats to contact them for a full refund. Customers can call 800-432-5437 or visit their website. The recall affects seats with model numbers CMR35, CMR36, CMR37, and DYH22 and Smart Connect Soothing Motions Seats with model number CMR39, according to reports.
The model numbers for the seats can be found on the bottom of the motor housing. Major retailers, such as Walmart, Sam's Club, Target, and Amazon have all sold the product. Please share this article with any new mothers you may know.
Most parents buy these seats as a way to soothe and comfort their child to sleep. However, the motor housing on the bottom of the seat is what is potentially at risk for bursting into flames. If a child is in the seat, and the parent is in another room, it is a recipe for a serious tragedy.
