Over 1.2 Million Playtex Pacifier Clips Recalled

Oh baby!  Here at CloudMom, we’re always trying to keep parents apprised of the latest baby product recalls, and this one is a biggie.  More than 1.25 MILLION Playtex pacifier holder clips have been recalled in the US and 15,000 in Canada.  The CSPC recently reported that these clips can crack, leaving a small piece of plastic to break off and pose a choking hazard to babies.  Playtex has received 99 reports of the clips cracking or breaking but thankfully, no reports of injuries.

Here are photos and a description of the clip from the CSPC website:

baby product recall

“…the Playtex pacifier holder clips [] attach a pacifier to items like clothing, diaper bags and strollers. It is a plastic clip with a figure and a “Playtex” copyright logo that slides up and down to adjust the clip, a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier. The pacifier holder was sold in green with a monkey figure, pink with a flower and blue with a tow truck.”

If you own this pacifier clip, take it away immediately and contact Playtex for instructions about how to return the product for a full refund.  You can call Playtex toll-free at (888) 220-2075 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or find them online at www.playtexproducts.com.

The clips were sold at Walmart, Target, Burlington Coat Factory, other major retailers, juvenile product, baby and discount stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, among others, from July 2010 through October 2013 for about $3.
