Pampers brand pacifiers recalled due to choking hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Key Baby LLC, announces a voluntary recall of Pampers (R) Natural Stages Infant Ortho and Bulb Pacifiers. The pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards and pose a choking hazard to young children.

The recall affects about 29,000 products sold at retail stores nationwide from April 2010 through February 2011 for about $6. The pacifier comes in yellow, pink or blue colors and is made of silicone. Only “Stage 1” pacifiers are recalled. “Stage 1” and “Ortho” or “Bulb” are printed on the package. The recalled pacifiers have an oval-shaped mouth guard and “Pampers” molded onto the handle side of the mouth guard. The product comes two per package.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from infants and contact Key Baby for instructions on returning the product for a full refund or $10 coupon toward the purchase of any Pampers® Natural Stages products.
