The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Toys ‘R’ Us Inc., of Wayne, N.J., has announced a voluntary recall of about 53,000 Babies ‘R’ Us pacifier clips because the pacifier clip’s spring mechanism can break and release small parts, posing a choking hazard.
The firm has received two reports of pacifier clips breaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Babies‘R’Us pacifier clips sold in an assortment of six colors and character designs, including a red monster, blue monster, monkey, giraffe, owl with one eye closed, and an owl with both eyes open.

The recalled pacifier clip assortment has model number 5F6237F and “®2014 Geoffrey, LLC” engraved on the back to the plastic cover.
