What’s the problem?
July 28, 2010 – Last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) announced a voluntary recall of about 44,900 Kariño baby pacifiers distributed by Antonio Flores of San Ysidro, California. Reports state the pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards. The nipple can separate from the base easily, the pacifier handle is too long, the mouth guard is too small, and there are no ventilation holes on the mouth guard. Additionally, the pacifiers could pose a choking and aspiration hazard to young children.
The pacifiers have a ring-shaped handle and a round-shaped mouth guard. “Kariño” is printed on the handle side of the mouth guard, and “Mygra” is printed on one side of the handle. The nipple is filled with corn syrup. Products affected by this recall were sold at independent grocery stores in California and Texas from October 2009 through March 2010.
