CPSC Recalls Baby Pacifiers Due to Choking Hazard

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging parents and caregivers to immediately stop providing "My Baby Soother" pacifiers to their children. The pacifiers failed to meet federal safety standards because the nipples can separate from the base easily, posing a choking hazard to infants and toddlers. CPSC is issuing this warning because distributor T & L Trading Corp., of Brooklyn, N.Y., has refused to recall these pacifiers.

About 16,500 "My Baby Soother" pacifiers were sold at grocery stores, delis, and discount stores in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Broadway, and Coney Island of New York from August 2007 through July 2009 for about $1.

The pacifiers have a ring-shaped handle and a blue, pink, red, white, or yellow heart-shaped mouth guard with two ventilation holes. The nipple is made of either silicon or latex. The pacifier package has the words "My Baby Soother" printed on the top and a picture of an infant on the background.

Distributors and retailers who purchased the “My Baby Soother” pacifiers from T & L Trading should immediately stop distributing the pacifier and call CPSC. Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from infants and toddlers and discard them.

CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. To make a report, click here.
