Boppy Newborn Loungers

The Boppy Company has recalled over 3 million Original Newborn Loungers, Boppy Preferred Newborn Loungers, and Pottery Barn Kids Boppy Newborn Loungers after 8 Infant Deaths due to suffocation. 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. 


Abbot Laboratories’ HeartMate 

Abbott Laboratories’ Thoratec Corp. is recalling 13,883 HeartMate II and HeartMate 3 Left Ventricular Assist Systems due to a possible buildup of “biological material” that can obstruct the device and keep it from properly pumping blood. The accumulation usually happens over two years or more.
