Product Recall Alert: The Boppy Company’s Luxe Head and Neck Support

Product Recall Alert: The Boppy Company’s Luxe Head and Neck Support

Here at the Child Safety Store, children’s safety is of utmost importance. Clearly, this is the case at The Boppy Company as well. The popular baby brand has voluntarily recalled one of their popular products to ensure the safety of its customers. The Boppy® Luxe Head and Neck Support is designed to be placed in products that hold babies and infants, like swings and strollers.

The product carefully cradles the baby’s head so that the head is supported. A cushioned removable neck ring provides support for the neck as the child grows.  

Why are the Boppy® Ebony Floral and Heathered Gray Head & Neck Support Products Being Recalled?

Unfortunately, the cushioned neck ring mentioned above is the cause of a recent recall of two particular Boppy® Luxe Head and Neck Support design patterns. Both the Boppy® Ebony Floral Head & Neck Support and the Boppy® Heathered Gray Head & Neck Support are being voluntarily recalled by the company, who is working with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). 

There have been no reported injuries related to these products. However, The Boppy Company is taking a proactive role in its commitment to the safety and quality of their products. See, it appears that the material used in these two items can be overstuffed. Sadly, this could potentially create difficulty breathing when in use. Of course, this creates a suffocation hazard. 

The Company urges customers to return these products for a refund.

These are images of the recalled products:
