Fisher-Price is recalling 63,000 infant motion seats because the housing for the motors that make them vibrate could overheat and catch fire.

Soothing Motions Seats (models CMR35, CMR36, CMR 37 and DYH22) and one model of Smart Connect Soothing Motions Seats (CMR39) are included in the recall, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The model number can be found on the underside of the motor housing.

Fisher-Price has received 36 reports of overheating, including one fire that was contained inside the housing, but no injuries were reported, CPSC said. The seats were sold at Target, ToysRUs, Walmart, and BuybuyBaby as well as other stores nationwide and online from November 2015 through October 2017.

The products retailed for between $160 and $175 each. Consumers are advised to stop using the product and contact Fisher-Price for a full refund.

"Children's and families' safety is always our top priority at Mattel. Our long record of safety is why Fisher-Price is the #1 most loved and trusted brand by moms. The actions we are taking today are in support of maintaining that highest level of trust. We ask consumers to visit service.mattel.com so we can provide them with recall and refund instructions," a spokesperson for parent company Mattel told Good Housekeeping.

Fisher Price also recalled 34,000 Cradle ‘n’ Swing products in April 2016 because of a seat peg that could cause the seat to fall. That recall was resolved by contacting Fisher-Price for alternative assembly directions.
