Chewbeads Inc. announced the recall of about 45,000 units of their “Where’s the Pacifier?” baby pacifier clip holder on September 29.
According to a notice on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website, the ring on the pacifier can break, causing beads to detach, which pose a choking hazard for children. The recalled pacifier clips have multi-colored beads and come in the shape of a dinosaur, butterfly, heart, sheriff’s badge, and baseball.
The manufacturer had already received 7 reports of detached beads; thankfully, no injuries have been reported so far.
The product was sold nationwide and in Canada at Buy Buy Baby stores and small boutique stores from September 2014 to June 2015. Consumers who purchased this item should discontinue using it immediately. They are also advised to contact the manufacturer for a free replacement pacifier clip or a refund on the old one.
