The Boppy Company has recalled over 3 million infant loungers last month due to 8 suffocation death incidents. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission commented on the recall stating, “Infants can suffocate if they roll, move, or are placed on the lounger in a position that obstructs breathing, or roll off the lounger onto an external surface, such as an adult pillow or soft bedding that obstructs breathing.” The loungers involved in the recall include Boppy Original Newborn Lounger (picture below on the left), Boppy Preferred Newborn Lounger (picture below in the center), and Pottery Barn Kids Boppy Newborn Lounger (pictured below on the right).
One family who lost their newborn due to the unknown hazards of the lounger is seeking legal action. Abraham Watkins is representing them, to fight for justice in the death of their innocent newborn.

When an infant is injured or dies as a result of a product defect, financial recovery may be available. While it cannot undo the harm done, financial recovery holds the manufacturers of these products accountable, to better ensure dangerous products stay out of the hands of consumers in the future. It is important to contact someone who understands the intricacies of the injured party’s right to recover.
