Federal safety officials have recalled about 1.25 million Playtex pacifier holder clips over choking concerns.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recall involves the Playtex pacifier holder clips that attach a pacifier to items like clothing, diaper bags and strollers. It is a plastic clip with a figure and a “Playtex” copyright logo that slides up and down to adjust the clip, a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier. The pacifier holder was sold in green with a monkey figure, pink with a flower and blue with a tow truck.
Safety officials say the pacifier holder clips can crack and a small part can break off which increases a small child’s risk of choking.
Playtex has received 99 reports of the holder cracking or breaking, but no injuries have been reported.
The recalled products were sold at Walmart, Target, Burlington Coat Factory and other retailers from July 2010 through October 2013 for about $3.They were also sold online.
