Wal-Mart recalls 174,000 dolls due to burn hazard

Wal-Mart recalled about 174,000 My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care baby dolls in the United State sand Canada because they have a circuit board in the chest, which can overheat. This can cause the surface of the doll to get hot, posing a burn hazard to a child. The 16 inch doll comes in pink floral clothing and matching knit hat, and comes packaged with a toy medical check-up kit including a stethoscope, feeding spoon, thermometer and syringe.

Wal-Mart has received 12 reports of incidents, including two reports of burns or blisters to the thumb. For more information, go to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
