The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with wholesaler/importer Sailing International Corp of New Jersey, today announced a voluntary recall about 8,000 Flashing Pacifiers or 2-in-1 Flashing Pacifiers with Whistle Necklaces. The nipple can detach from the base, posing a choking hazard to young children. Incidents/Injuries: None reported.
The recalled pacifier necklace has a 28-inch multicolored cord with a 3- inch plastic pacifier that comes in assorted colors. A hole at the tip of the nipple is used as a blow hole for the whistle. The pacifier handle operates as the on-off button for the flashing light on both pacifiers. “Flashing Pacifier” or “2-in-1 Flashing Pacifier with Whistle Necklace” is printed on the packaging of the pacifiers. They were sold at various retail stores nationwide during the month of June 2007 for about $5 per dozen.
Manufactured in China, consumers should immediately stop using the pacifiers and return them to the store where purchased to receive a full refund or discard the pacifiers.
