Various Firms Recall Flashing Pacifiers for Choking, Aspiration and Strangulation Hazards
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firms named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Name of Product: Flashing Pacifiers
Units: About 237,000
Importers/Retailers: Rhode Island Novelty, of Providence, R.I.; Hayes Specialties Corp., of Saginaw, Mich.; My Bargain Bin LLC., of New Castle, Del.; Ravesupply.com, of Las Vegas, Nev.; Vistawholesale.com, of Greencastle, Ind.; Xtreme Jewelry, of New York, N.Y.; Intertradecorp.com, of Cheverly, Md.; Litesrus.com, of San Jose, Calif.; and Dollar Days International LLC, of Scottsdale, Ariz.
Hazard: These pacifiers failed to meet federal safety standards for pacifiers. The nipple can separate from the shield easily, posing a choking hazard. Some pacifiers were sold with necklaces that pose a strangulation hazard, and one of the necklaces has beads that can come loose, which poses an aspiration hazard. Though they are marketed for older children, they could be given to babies, and can cause serious injury or death.
Incidents/Injuries: None reported.
Description: The units involved are flashing pacifiers and flashing pacifiers with whistles. The pacifiers are clear or colored purple, blue, pink or green. The pacifiers have five flashing LED lights that are red and blue, red and light green and orange. Some pacifiers are sold with a rainbow cord that is attached to handles, and some cords have breakaway connectors. One pacifier has multi-colored beads on the cords in the shapes of barrels, trains, boats and various animals. Pacifiers were sold in clamshell packages. The packaging has a warning that states they are for "12+ Years" or "6+ Years." Some of the products have a warning on the packaging that they are not a real pacifier, but a practical joke. The chart below lists additional information about the products sold and what is written on the packaging.
