WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Summer Infant is recalling about 800,000 rechargeable batteries used in baby video monitors because of a burn hazard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the battery on the handheld monitor can overheat and rupture, posing a burn hazard.
The recall applies to more than a dozen models made by Summer Infant. There's been 22 reports so far, including smoke and minor property damage.
The units under recall were sold between 2010 and 2012. The products were sold at Wal-Mart, Target, Babies "R" Us and Amazon all sold the products.
Consumers can contact Summer Infant for a replacement battery at (800) 426-8627 or online at
