The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Calisson Inc., of Dana Point, California, have recalled about 7,000 Cool-It Soothers by Vulli. If the teething ring is punctured, bacteria and mold can grow inside the teether's untreated liquid. This poses an ingestion hazard to infants and can lead to diarrhea and vomiting. No injuries have been reported.
