The recalled My Sweet Love/ My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care Baby Dolls come in a pink floral outfit and matching knit hat, and a toy medical check-up kit consisting of stethoscope, feeding spoon, thermometer, and syringe. The dolls have an electrical system in them that allow for the doll to babble when it is sick, cheeks to turn red, and cough. The doll is designed for children to use the medical pieces to treat the child.
The packaging of the dolls has “My Sweet Baby” printed on the front of the clear plastic and cardboard packaging. Recalled products may be identified by locating the recalled UPC code 6-04576-16800-5 and date code beginning with “WM” on the label sewn into the bottom of the doll.
The Wal-Mart dolls were manufactured in China under Tak Ngai Electronic Toys Co. LTD, and imported by Wal-Mart Stores Inc., of Bentonville, Arkansas where they were sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide as well as online at www.walmart.com from August 2012 through March 2014 for roughly $20.
The CPSC urges customers to take the dolls away from children immediately and remove the batteries. Customers can contact Wal-Mart at 800-925-6278 or visit them online at walmart.com and navigate to the Product Recall link for information on how to obtain a full refund.
