Walmart is recalling an electronic baby doll due to a burn hazard.

The recall applies to the My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby doll sold between August 2012 through March 2014.

The doll is packaged with a toy medical check-up kit. Electronics cause her to babble when she gets “sick,” her cheeks turn red and she starts coughing. Using the check-up kit causes the symptoms to stop.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the circuit board in the chest of the doll can overheat, causing the surface of the doll to get hot, posing a burn hazard to the consumer. Walmart has received 12 reports of incidents, including two reports of burns or blisters to the thumb.

The commission says consumers should immediately take the dolls from children, remove the batteries and return the doll to any Walmart store for a full refund.
