More than 333,000 silicone pacifiers have been recalled because they pose a potential choking hazard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
In a news release, the CPSC stated that Mushie & Co., LLC, of Houston, Texas, the retailer for FRIGG silicone pacifiers, has two types of designs for its products, which are imported from Denmark: Classic and Daisy. The Classic design consists of a silicone nipple attached to a round, plastic shield, while the Daisy design consists of a silicone nipple attached to a round, scalloped plastic shield.
Each design came in two sizes: 0–6 months and 6–18 months, the CPSC said.
According to the CPSC, the base of the silicone nipple “has a fine slit” that can cause the nipple to detach from the plastic shield, posing a choking hazard.
A total of 333,725 pacifiers are affected by the recall.
Mushie & Co. has received eight reports of the silicone nipple detaching from the pacifier’s plastic shield, the CPSC reported. The manufacturer has also received about 200 reports from outside the U.S. of the silicone nipple detaching from the shield.
No injuries have been reported, the CPSC said in its release.
The pacifiers, which were manufactured in more than 40 different colors, were sold at Amazon, T.J. Maxx and other stores from April 2021 to December 2021, the agency said.
