The rechargeable battery inside can overheat and rupture, posing a burn hazard.
There have been 22 reports of overheated and ruptured batteries, including smoke and minor property damage.
The hand-held, color video monitors were sold with a matching camera and A/C adaptors at Babies "R'' Us, online and other retailers from about February 2010 through 2012 for $150 to $350. The batteries are about 1 ½ inches tall by 2 ¼ inches wide and are ¼ inches thick, black, and marked with TCL on the batteries' lower right corner.
