The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with The Boppy Company of Colorado, today announced a voluntary recall of about 38,000 Boppy® Slipcovers. 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. Incidents/Injuries: None reported.
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. Slipcovers sold in clear vinyl packages are labeled Boppy® Luxe. Slipcovers recalled due excessive levels of lead paint were sold in four colors. Slipcovers sold in display boxes are labeled Boppy® Soothing.
Slipcovers recalled due to choking hazard were sold at discount department stores nationwide from July 2006 through September 2007 for about $16. Slipcovers recalled due to lead paint were sold at discount department stores nationwide from February 2007 through September 2007 for between $15 and $17.
