Over 3 million infant loungers made by Boppy, the popular maker of baby products, are being recalled after reports of eight infant deaths between 2015 and 2020, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today, urging people to "immediately stop" using the loungers.   The recalled products were sold at retailers including Pottery Barn, Target, and Walmart and Amazon.com from January 2004 through today, according to the CPSC. The loungers retailed for between $30 and $44 and were "sold in a variety of colors and fashions."  Boppy also distributed about 35,000 of the recalled loungers in Canada, according to the CPSC.  The news of the recall follows a report from Consumer Reports earlier this month that found seven recent infant deaths were tied to nursing pillows and infant loungers made by Boppy.  It also comes one year after the CPSC issued a warning for caregivers about the risks of using pillow-like products for sleeping infants.
