Around 174,000 baby dolls sold exclusively at Walmart are being recalled because a component can overheat, which poses a burn hazard for your little one.
Product description: This recall focuses on Walmart's My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care Baby Doll. It's a 16-inch electronic baby doll that comes dressed in pink floral clothing and a matching pink hat. The doll is packaged with a medical care kit, which includes a stethoscope, feeding spoon, thermometer and syringe. The doll babbles when "sick," her cheeks turn red and she coughs. The items from the medical kit help her get "better." She can be identified by a UPC code — 6-04576-16800-5 — and a date code which begins with WM.
Where/when it was sold: These recalled dolls were sold exclusively at Walmart from August 2012 through March 2014 for $20.
