Wal-Mart Recalls 174,000 Baby Dolls Over Burn Risk — Check The Toy Box Now!

Walmart Recalls Baby Dolls

Bentonville, AR — Wal-Mart is recalling 174,000 My Sweet Love/My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care Baby dolls because they have a circuit board in the chest that could overheat and cause the surface of the doll to get hot, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The 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.

“My Sweet Baby” is printed on the front of the clear plastic and cardboard packaging. The doll is identified by 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.

Wal-Mart received 12 reports related to the doll, including two reports that the doll caused burns or blisters to the user’s thumb, the commission said. Manufactured in China, the battery-operated dolls have been sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores from August 2012 through March 2014 for about $20.

Customers who bought the doll should remove the batteries, and return it to Wal-Mart for a full refund.
