The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in conjunction with Chewbeads, of New York, N.Y., has announced a voluntary recall of about 45,000 in United States (in addition about 5,900 were sold in Canada) Pacifier clips because the “D” ring on the pacifier clip can break, allowing beads to detach, posing a choking hazard.
The firm has received seven reports of the beads detaching. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves six styles of Chewbeads Baby pacifier clip holders. The “Where’s the Pacifier?” pacifier clips styles include shapes of a Butterfly, Dinosaur, Heart, Sheriff Badge and a white baseball with red stitching and a major league baseball team logo. “Chewbeads baby” is imprinted in raised letters on the rubber shape attachment. The pacifier clips have eight multi-colored beads threaded through a narrow satin ribbon that attaches to a pacifier on one end and a plastic D-ring on the other. The clip and beads are about six inches long. The garment clip has the following number code on the back of the plastic clip: 3/31/14, 08/08/14, 12/01/14, 14/30/09, 15/02/09, 25/04/14.
Consumers should immediately take these recalled pacifier clips away from young children and contact Chewbeads toll-free at 888-786-7790 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.chewbeads.com and click on the Product Recall link at the bottom of the page for more information on how to receive a free replacement pacifier clip or a refund of the purchase price.
