‘Scary Doll’ Recalled Over Burn Risk
Walmart recalled a baby doll this week saying the circuit board in the chest can overheat and pose burn hazards.
The My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby doll comes with a medical check-up kit and the inner electronics make her babble and cough when she gets sick. Her cheeks also turn red.
A grandmother in Iowa described it as a “scary doll.”
“My 3-year-old grandson picked up the baby and he threw it and said, ‘that baby bit me.’ I grabbed the baby and I smelled it and I was like, this baby’s on fire,” Julia Sird told WQAD.
Walmart received 12 incident reports, including two reports of burns or blisters to the thumb.
The dolls should be taken away from children immediately and the batteries should be removed.
The doll being recalled has the 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.
It was sold from August 2012 through March 2014 for $20.
A full refund will be offered when the doll is returned to any Walmart store.
