Thousands of pacifiers recalled in California may cause infant death
Posted on Jul 20, 2010
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced on Tuesday that it is recalling approximately 44,9000 pacifiers that were sold in independent grocery stores in California and Texas for 25 cents each between October 2009 and March 2010.
The Karino Baby Pacifiers, which are made in Mexico and distributed by Antonio Flores in San Ysidro, are being recalled because they present a choking hazard.
The pacifier has the word "Karino" on the handle side of the mouth guard and the word "Mygra" on one side of the handle. The pacifier has the potential to pose a choking and aspiration hazard to young children. The nipple on the pacifier can easily separate from the base and cause a child to choke. In addition, the pacifier handle is too long and the mouth guard is too small and there are no ventilation holes on the mouth guard.
No injuries or wrongful deaths have been reported; however, parents should take the pacifiers away from children immediately and contact Antonio Flores at (619) 395-4543 for a full refund or exchange.
