The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued the Bobby Pillow Recall for over 3 million baby lounger products after the manufacturer, The Boppy Company, received reports of infants suffocating while using their products. According to parents, the infants were placed in the product in a safe position, but the child fell asleep and rolled into a position that restricted their breathing. Baby loungers are infamous for their danger to sleeping children, and the Boppy Company’s products are no different, as the soft and plush nature provides the opposite of a safe sleeping environment.
This is not the first instance of a child losing their life to a Boppy Company Product; the first death was reported in 2015. Since that time, the company has made little to no change in the design of its product, which has resulted in more devastated parents having to deal with the loss of their children. Although the company claims that its product was never marketed as a sleeping device for infants, it is very apparent that something needs to change to keep children across the country safe from harm.
Which Products Are Being Recalled?
The Boppy Company has three different baby lounger products:
According to the CPSC recall, the pillows on the affected products could be overstuffed and force an infant’s head into a position where breathing is difficult. The combination of the overstuffed cushion and the unsafe sleep environment of the product creates a very dangerous situation for any infant who falls asleep in the lounger. The Boppy Company claims that there are specific instructions to supervise a child who is using the product, but considering infants fall asleep sporadically and sometimes quickly, the product could have been designed in a safer way that doesn’t pose such a risk.
Why Are Baby Loungers Dangerous?
Product liability laws exist to protect consumers from the unfortunate consequences of a defective product. Any manufacturer that fails to adhere to the proper safety guidelines before selling their product is liable for the damage, and by teaming up with an experienced Bobby Pillow Lawyer who can advocate on your behalf. Although the compensation from a lawsuit cannot change the past, it can help you recover from your situation and avoid financial strain.
