Due to a potential choking hazard, Chewbeads Inc. has recalled over 45,000 pacifier clips in the United States and Canada. The products, which are called “Where’s the Pacifier?”, were manufactured in China; they were sold in Buy Buy Baby and small boutique stores in the US and Canada, Fox News reports.
Chewbeads has received seven reports of beads detaching from the pacifier clips, according to the Consumer Products Safety Commission. No injuries have been reported. Recalled clips have one of the following number codes on the back: 3/31/14, 08/08/14, 12/01/14, 14/30/09, 15/02/09, 25/04/14.
The recall includes five styles of the pacifier clip holders, including those with shapes of a butterfly, a dinosaur, a heart, a sheriff’s badge, a white baseball with red stitching and a major league baseball team logo. The product contains eight multi-colored beads threaded on a satin ribbon. The beaded ribbon is attached to a pacifier on one end and a plastic D-ring on the other; the product is about 6 inches long in total. The baseball-themed clips were sold for $16.50. All other styles were sold for $15. Customers are advised to immediately take the clips away from children and contact the company for a return or refund.
