The pacifier clip recall singles out all Babies ‘R’ Us pacifier clips sold in one of the following six colors and character designs: a red monster, blue monster, monkey, giraffe, owl with one eye closed, and an owl with both eyes open. Each of the recalled pacifier clips feature a circular plastic cover attached to a metal spring clip, as well as a fabric strip with snap at one end. The baby product’s model number of 5F6237F and trademark of “®2014 Geoffrey, LLC” can be found on the back of the plastic cover.

From February 2015 through April 2016, the recalled pacifier clips were sold exclusively by Babies ‘R’ Us  and Toys ’R’ Us stores nationwide for roughly $4.

Consumers in possession of one or more of the recalled pacifier clips should take them away from babies and return the product to any Babies ‘R’ Us or Toys ‘R’ Us location to receive a full refund.
