The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Playtex Products Inc., today announced a voluntary recall of about 1.2 million Playtex pacifier holder clips because the holder clips can crack and a small part can break off which poses a choking hazard to small children.
Playtex has received 99 reports of the holder cracking or breaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the Playtex pacifier holder clips that attach a pacifier to items like clothing, diaper bags and strollers. It is a plastic clip with a figure and a “Playtex” copyright logo that slides up and down to adjust the clip, a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier. The pacifier holder was sold in green with a monkey figure, pink with a flower and blue with a tow truck.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifier holders away from infants and contact Playtex toll-free at (888) 220-2075 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.playtexproducts.com and click on Recall for more information on how to return the product for a full refund.
The newest recall is the second in just over a month for Playtex. Just before Christmas the CPSC issued a recall for 341,000 Hip Hammock Baby Carriers after two reports of injuries, where one infant required emergency room treatment.
