Fire risk prompts Philips to recall Avent baby monitors
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 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.
