Pacifiers Recalled for Choking Risk

Pacifiers are being recalled because they pose a choking hazard to babies, according to news reports.

Key Baby LLC is recalling nearly 29,000 Pampers brand pacifiers because the pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards and pose a choking hazard.

The recalled pacifiers include the Pampers Natural Stages Infant Ortho and Bulb brand. “Only the Stage 1 silicone pacifiers are involved the recall. The pacifiers, which come two per package, are available in yellow, pink or blue and have “Stage 1” and “Ortho” or “Bulb” printed on their packaging. They have an oval-shaped mouth guard with “Pampers” printed on the handle side of the mouth guard,” according to news reports.

“The pacifiers sold for about $6 at retailers across the country from April 2010 through February 2011.”

As a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I urge parents to check their child’s pacifiers and take the recalled items away from infants. Consumers can return the pacifiers to the store where they were purchased or contact Key Baby for a refund coupon.  I’m glad that Key Baby was able to find the defect and recall the item before any reports of personal injuries or deaths occurred.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a recalled item, contact a personal injury lawyer in Seattle.
