Pacifiers Recalled For Choking Hazard

April 12, 2011 Updated Apr 12, 2011 at 11:40 AM EDT

(WBNG Binghamton) Pampers® Natural Stages Pacifiers have been recalled by Key Baby due to a choking hazard.

About 29,000 Ortho and Bulb Pacifiers were sold at retail stores nationwide from April 2010 through February 2011 for about $6.

The pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards and pose a choking hazard to young children.

No incident or injuries have been reported.

The pacifier comes in yellow, pink or blue colors and is made of silicone.

Only "Stage 1" pacifiers are recalled.

"Stage 1" and "Ortho" or "Bulb" are printed on the package.

The recalled pacifiers have an oval-shaped mouth guard and "Pampers" molded on to the handle side of the mouth guard.

The product comes two per package.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from infants and contact Key Baby for instructions on returning the product for a full refund or $10 coupon toward the purchase of any Pampers® Natural Stages products.
