Playtex recalls 1.4 million pacifier holder clips

Playtex recalled about 1.4 million pacifier holder clips in the United States and Canada because they can crack and a small part could break off, which could pose a choking hazard to small children.

The recall involves the Playtex pacifier holder clips that 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. 

The company has received 99 reports of the holder cracking or breaking. No injuries have been reported. For more information, go to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
