RECALL: Boppy Pillows Covers Due to Choking Hazard and Risk of Lead Exposure
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission(CPSC), in cooperation with The Boppy Company is recalling 38,000 covers because the zipper pull on the slipcovers can break, posing a choking hazard to young children. In addition, paint on the zippers contains excess levels of lead, which violates the federal lead paint standard.
This recall involves velvet and boa slipcovers intended for use with the Boppy® Bare Naked nursing and support pillow.
Slipcovers recalled due to a choking hazard were sold in three color combinations and have the following UPC and date codes found on the California Flammability Law tag. Slipcovers sold in clear vinyl packages are labeled Boppy® Luxe.
