Philips has issued a recall for its Avent Digital Video Baby Monitors produced and sold between January 2016 and January 2020, due to an identified fire risk.

The company revealed that the battery in the parent unit might overheat while the product is plugged into an electrical outlet, posing a potential fire hazard.

The recalled monitors, originating from China, include several model numbers: SCD620, SCD625, SCD630, SCD831, SCD833, SCD841, SCD843, and SCD845.

These units, distinctively white and grey, comprise a camera/microphone and a separate video viewing device.

It was discovered that the affected product doesn’t meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016. This issue could lead to the parent unit catching fire, raising serious safety concerns.

Philips has initiated corrective action, recalling the product from end users.

Consumers who own these baby monitors are advised to stop using them and check if their monitor is affected by visiting the Philips recall page.
