Skip Hop of New York, N.Y., is recalling about 151,500 Moonlight & Melodies owl nightlight soothers sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The soother’s USB wall power adapter can break, posing an electrical shock hazard.

The company says it is aware of incidents of the power adapter breaking, including one that resulted in an electrical shock.

This recall involves Skip Hop’s Moonlight & Melodies owl and elephant nightlight soothers that play melodies or nature sounds and project images. They have a USB wall power adapter and cord.

The white and gray owl soothers measure about 5.5 by 4.5 by 6 inches. The white elephant soother measures about 7 x 4.2 x 5.7 inches.

The soothers have a sound speaker on each side and operation buttons at the top or the back. The Skip Hop logo is on the underside of the soother.

The soothers, manufactured in China, were sold at Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby, Target and other retailers nationwide and online at Skiphop.com and Amazon.com from July 2016, through August 2017, for approximately $40.
