Pacifier sets recalled due to choking hazard
Five styles of pacifiers from Munchkin have been recalled due to a choking hazard, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The company is recalling Latch lightweight pacifiers and clips, which are sold as a set. According to the CPSC, the five styles affected include "designer, rattle and heartbeat clips with 0m+ natural shape pacifiers, and designer and rattle clips with 6m+ orthodontic pacifiers. The designer pacifiers and clips 0m+ and 6m+ are in three color patterns: blue and white strips, orange and with white polka dots and pink with white polka dots. The rattle pacifiers and clips 0m+ and 6m+ are green with beads in the pacifier cover to make a rattle sound and have a polka dot strap. The heartbeat pacifiers and clips have a red, heart-shaped pacifier cover and red and white polka dots on the strap."
Munchkin issued the recall after receiving 10 reports of the clip cover detaching from the pacifier clip, but no injuries were reported.
The pacifiers were sold at Babies R Us, Target, Walmart, Amazon and other mass retailers nationwide for approximately $11 – $15.
