The Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning parents of a baby doll recall. 

The commission says Walmart is recalling its My Sweet Love/My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care baby doll due to a burn hazard.

Officials say the circuit board in the chest of the doll can overheat, causing the surface of the doll to get hot and posing a burn hazard for the consumer. Walmart has received 12 reports of incidents, including two reports of burns or blisters to the thumb.

The commission says the My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby electronicbaby doll comes in pink floral clothing and matching knit hat. The 16 inch dollis packaged with a toy medical check-up kit including a stethoscope, feedingspoon, thermometer and syringe. The doll's electronics cause her to babble whenshe gets "sick," her cheeks turn red and she starts coughing. Using the medicalkit pieces cause the symptoms to stop.

"My Sweet Baby" is printed on the frontof the clear plastic and cardboard packaging. Officials say the doll is identified by UPC6-04576-16800-5 and a date code which begins with WM. The date code is printedon the stuffed article label sewn into the bottom of the doll.

Officials say consumers should immediately take the dolls fromchildren, remove the batteries and return the doll to any Walmart store for afull refund.

They were sold at Walmart stores nationwide from August2012 through March 2014.
