The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada in cooperation with Playtex Products Inc., of Dover, Del. announced the recall of about 1.25 million Playtex pacifier holder clips in the U.S. and 150,000 in Canada.
The pacifier 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.
The Playtex pacifier holder clips were sold at Walmart, Target, Burlington Coat Factory, other major retailers, juvenile product, baby and discount stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, among others, from July 2010 through October 2013 for about $3.
They were manufactured in China.
