August 23, 2012: CareBears Pacifier Recalled by IDM Group
About 119,000 CareBears™ pacifiers have been recalled due to choking hazards.
What’s the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with IDM Group LLC, has announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
The pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards. The nipples can separate from the base, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Do You Own It?
The pacifiers and the clip attachment have CareBear figures and a “TCFC” copyright mark on them. The nipple is made of silicone.
The pacifiers sold at various discount and dollar stores, Wal-Mart Puerto Rico, children’s apparel stores, and Consolidated Stores nationwide from October 2009 through June 2012 for about $1.
What Should You Do?
Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from infants and contact IDM Group LLC for instructions on returning the product for a full refund.
