RECALL ALERT: 800,000 Baby Monitor Batteries Recalled

ThinkStock

About 800,000 rechargeable batteries used in the Summer Infant infant video monitor are being recalled because of burn hazards, according to the U.S. government.

Officials say that the battery in the handheld video monitor can overheat and rupture, which poses a burn hazard to consumers, the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The recall applies to more than a dozen video models made by Summer Infant, including the Baby Touch, Safe Light, and Slim & Secure monitors.

The batteries are roughly 1 1/2 inches tall by 2 1/4 inches wide and are marked “TCL” on the lower right corner.

So far, the company has received 22 reports of overheated and ruptured batteries.

About 58,000 of the batteries were recalled back in 2011 for a similar burn hazard.

Consumers should remove the batteries and contact Summer Infant for a replacement battery. The monitor can continue to be used with the power cord without issue.

The units were sold between 2010 through 2012 and cost between $150 to $350.

Summer Infant monitors are sold at Wal-Mart, Target, Babies “R” Us and on Amazon.com.
