Flashing Pacifiers Recalled

Date:
November 2, 2006
Category:
Toys & Games
Pacifiers & Teething
Company/Brand:
Rhode Island Novelty; Specialties Corp.; Ravesupply.com; Vistawholesale.com; Xtreme Jewelry; Intertradecorp.com; Litesrus.com; Dollar Days International LLC
The Danger:
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.
Description:
This recall involves about 237,000 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 multicolored 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.
Sold At:
Novelty shops, toy stores, carnivals, amusement parks, and Web retailers nationwide from January 2003 through September 2006 for between $0.55 and $13.
What To Do:
Take the pacifiers away from young children immediately and get rid of them. You can also return the pacifiers to the retailers listed above for a refund.
