    Fisher-Price Soothing Motions Seats or Smart Connect Soothing Motions Seats could overheat and have its motor catch on fire.

    Fisher-Price is issuing a recall for nearly 63,000 of the infant seats in the United States.

    The “Soothing Motion Seats” with model numbers CMR35, CMR36, CMR37 and DYH22 and “Smart Connect Seats” with model number CMR39 are included in the recall, the Consumer Product Safety Commission wrote.

    The model number is located on the underside of the motor housing.

    The affected infant seats — made in China — were sold at Target, Toys R Us, Walmart and BuybuyBaby, both in-store and online nationwide, from Nov. 2015 to Oct. 2017.

    They were also sold on Amazon.com.

    In addition to the 63,000 in the United States, another 2,000 of the infant motion seats in Canada are also being recalled. There have been no injuries reported.

    Those with the seats are warned to “immediately stop using” them, as they can receive a full refund from Fisher-Price.
