Pacifier Recall Due to Choking Hazard
If you spend any amount of time around babies, you know that dropping things is a common occurrence. This includes their pacifier, binky, or whatever nickname your family has for this magical thing that soothes your child. So, when pacifier clips came around, it was our saving grace.
Today, however Toys 'R' Us and Babies 'R' Us have announced a recall on some of their pacifier clips due to a choking hazard. Apparently, the issue is with the clips' spring mechanism which can break and reveal small pieces. That's the hazard.
According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, the pacifier clips involved in this recall were sold in six different color and character designs and have a plastic circular cover over the metal spring clip with a fabric strip that snaps at the end. This assortment of pacifiers have the model #5F6237F and @2014 Geoffrey, LLC engraved on the plastic cover.
If you have any of these pacifiers, please return them to either Babies 'R' Us or Toys 'R' Us for a refund or click here for more information.
