Nearly 334,000 baby pacifiers are being recalled because they could pose a choking risk.
According to the recall notice posted on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website, Mushie & Co is recalling its “FRIGG silicone pacifiers” because the “base of the silicone nipple has a fine slit that can cause the nipple to detach from the plastic shield, posing a choking hazard.”
Two designs of the pacifiers are included in the recall – classic and daisy – and both came in two sizes 0-6 months and 6-18 months. They were sold in more than 40 colors at TJ Maxx, SpearmintLOVE, Lil’ Tulips, Olivia & Jade Company stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and Mushie.com.

No injuries have been reported, the recall notice said, but the company has received eight reports of the silicone nipple detaching from the plastic shield of the pacifier and 200 reports from outside the U.S. of the nipple detaching.
Consumers are advised to “immediately stop using the recalled pacifiers and contact the firm for a full refund or credit,” the recall said.

To get a refund or credit, consumers are asked to “cut the silicone nipple from the base of the pacifier and send a photograph of both the detached silicone nipple and the base of the pacifier to Mushie & Co at: Mushie.com/pages/recalls. Consumers should then properly dispose of the pacifier by placing both pieces into the garbage.”
A single pacifier cost about $8 and a two-pack cost about $15, the company said.
