CPSC Urges Parents and Caregivers to Stop Using My Baby Soother Pacifiers Due to Choking Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging parents and caregivers to immediately stop providing My Baby Soother pacifiers to their children. The pacifiers were distributed by T & L Trading Corp., of Brooklyn, N.Y. 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 T & L Trading has refused to recall these pacifiers.
About 16,500 My Baby Soother pacifiers were sold at grocery stores, delis, and discount stores in Bronx, Brooklyn, Broadway, and Coney Island of New York from August 2007 through July 2009 for about $1.
The My Baby Soother pacifier has 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.
