Fisher-Price is recalling about 65,000 Soothing Motions Seats in the U.S. and Canada for a potential fire hazard. The recall was issued Tuesday.
A notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says multiple models are affected. The model number can be found on the underside of the part of the device holding the motor.
The infant motion seats bounce, sway or do both. They also vibrate, play 10 songs and nature sounds and have an overhead mobile. The hazard comes from the seat’s motor overheating.
“Fisher-Price has received 36 reports of the product overheating, including one report of a fire contained within the motor housing,” the CPSC notice said. “No injuries have been reported.”
Fisher-Price Soothing Motions Seats with model numbers CMR35, CMR36, CMR37, and DYH22 and Smart Connect Soothing Motions Seats with the model number CMR39 are impacted. The former was sold for $160 and the twas sold for $175. These items were sold at Amazon.com, Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, Buy Buy Baby and other stores and websites from Nov. 2015-Oct. 2017.
Consumers who have the seats should stop using them immediately and contact Fisher-Price for a refund.
More information, including images and colors of both affected models, can be found at the CPSC website. consumers can also contact Fisher-Price at 800-432-5437 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or service.mattel.com. and clicking “recall and safety alerts.”
