Skip Hop recalls nightlight soothers due to shock hazard

Skip Hop is recalling its Moonlight and Melodies nightlight soothers due to an electrical shock hazard.

The company says the soother's USB wall power adapter can break, posing a hazard, and the recall extends to about 130,000 units.

This recall involves Skip Hop’s Moonlight & Melodies owl and elephant nightlight soothers that play melodies or nature sounds and project images. They have a USB wall power adapter and cord.

The white and gray owl soothers measure about 5.5 by 4.5 by 6 inches. The white elephant soother measures about 7 x 4.2 x 5.7 inches. The soothers have a sound speaker on each side and operation buttons at the top or the back. The Skip Hop logo is on the underside of the soother.

If you have one of these soothers, you should immediately stop using the recalled nightlight soothers and contact Skip Hop for instructions on returning the USB wall power adapter with a prepaid shipping label and receive a free repair kit which includes a free USB wall adapter.

Skip Hop is aware of incidents of the power adapter breaking, including one that resulted in an electrical shock. 

The product was sold at Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby, Target and other retailers nationwide and online at skiphop.com and amazon.com from July 2016-August 2017 for about $40.
