According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Healthtex is voluntarily recalling about 40,000 of its zoo pacifiers, which were manufactured in Spain and sold in supermarkets and pharmacy stores nationwide from December 2002 through March 2009 for about $1.40. The pacifiers failed to meet federal safety standards. The nipples can separate from the base easily, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Do You Own These Pacifiers?
The recalled pacifiers have animal cartoon figures as handles. Each pacifier has a round-shaped mouth guard with three ventilation holes. "Made in Spain" is printed on the handle side of the mouth guard and "Mi Tosoro" is printed on the cardboard packaging.
Whom to Contact
Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from children and contact Healthtex for a refund or exchange. For additional information, contact Healthtex toll-free at (866) 348-5080 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
