Mustache Pacifiers Recalled

Attention parents – we “mustache” you to check if you have one of these dangerous pacifiers in your house!

Fred & Friends has recalled 200,000 Chill Baby Pacifiers (183,000 in the United States and 17,000 in Canada) because of a serious choking hazard, according to the CPSC.
The pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards, as the beard on the Artiste and the knob on the Volume pacifiers can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. In addition, the ventilation holes on the Volume and Panic pacifier guards are too small.

with a black volume control knob  and Panic with a red panic button.

UPC is 728987021282, the Volume style’s UPC is 728987020599 and the
Panic style’s UPC is 728987020605. The pacifiers are plastic and
silicone rubber and measure about 2 inches wide and 1½ inches tall.

grocery and home decorating stores, and hospital, museum gift shops
nationwide and various websites from April 2013 through December 2013
for about $10.
