The Boppy Company promoted the Boppy Loungers as a “hands-free” option for feeding and lounging.

However, according to Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Boppy’s website, the pillow-like device may create a suffocation hazard for babies if their airways become blocked. This may occur when babies roll or move, are placed incorrectly in the lounger, or if they roll off onto another surface such as a soft blanket or bedding, or another pillow. The recall notice indicates the deaths occurred after placing infants on the loungers on their stomachs, sides, or back, and they found the infants suffocated on their sides or belly.

For more information about this recall, or if your child or loved one has sustained injuries after using one of these pillows, please contact our attorneys immediately for a free consultation.
