There’s a recall underway tonight that could pose a risk to you or your baby.

This is a picture of the summer infant baby monitor.

The U.S. consumer product safety commission says 800,000 of these devices are under recall.

The rechargeable 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 of overheated and ruptured batteries — including smoke and minor property damage.

The units under recall were sold between 2010 and 2012.

Walmart, Target, Babies “R” Us, and Amazon all sold the products.
