The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with IDM Group LLC, of New York and Yi Wu Jiangyi Plastic Co., of China, has announced a voluntary recall of CareBears™ Pacifiers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
The pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards. The nipples can separate from the base, posing a choking hazard to young children. No injuries have been reported due to use of this product.
The pacifiers and the clip attachment have CareBear figures and a “TCFC” copyright mark on them. The nipple is made of silicone. They were sold at various discount and dollar stores, Walmart Puerto Rico, children’s apparel stores and Consolidated Stores nationwide from October 2009 through June 2012 for about $1.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from infants and contact IDM Group LLC for instructions on returning the product for a full refund.
