SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Wal-Mart has issued a recall for about 174,000 baby dolls sold nationwide from August 2012 through March 2014 for a burn hazard.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the My Sweet Love/My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care Baby Doll has received 12 reports of incidents, including two reports of burns or blisters to the thumb.

The doll’s electronics cause her to babble when she gets “sick,” her cheeks turn red and she starts coughing. The circuit board in the chest of the doll can overheat, causing the surface of the doll to get hot.

The doll is identified by UPC 6-04576-16800-5 and a date code which begins with WM. The date code is printed on the stuffed article label sewn into the bottom of the doll.

Consumers are urged to immediately take the dolls from children, remove the batteries and return the doll to any Wal-Mart store for a full refund.
