Boppy Infant Head and Neck Support Accessories Recall: Suffocation Risk

About 14,000 Bobby infant head and neck support accessories are being recalled, due to a risk that the design may cause infants’ heads to tilt too far forward, creating a suffocation hazard.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a Bobby recall on July 23, following several consumer complaints that the foam neck support pushes infants’ chins toward the chest, which could pose an airway blockage risk.

The recall involves infant head and neck support accessories, which are designed to be placed behind an infant’s head while laying down, in strollers, swings or bouncers. They have a foam-filled fabric surrounding the infant’s head to keep it in place, and two pillow-like supports on each side to support the infant’s neck.

The recall comes after several consumers indicated the head support was overfilled with foam, causing the infant’s chin to be driven downward, touching their chest. This position could cause an obstruction of the infant’s airway and pose a suffocation risk.

Approximately 14,000 Boppy Head and Neck support accessories are impacted, which were designed in an Ebony Floral and Heathered Gray color marked with model numbers 4150114 and 4150117 that are printed on a fabric label on the back of the head support.

The products were manufactured in China by The Bobby Company LLC, of Golden, Colorado where they were imported and distributed for sale nationwide to Target, Buy Buy Baby and various other children product stores as well as online through Amazon from march 2019 through May 2019 for about $20.

Customers are being asked to stop using the recalled Bobby head and neck supports immediately and to contact The Bobby Company at 888-772-6779 or email them at for information on how to receive a full refund.
