Baby Town Pacifiers Recalled


   

January 10, 2008
Shims Bargain Inc. is recalling about 45,000 Baby Town pacifiers.

These pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards for pacifiers. The pacifier shield is too small and could easily enter the mouth of an infant. Also, ventilation holes are too small and not placed to allow for the insertion of a tool to remove the pacifier when lodged in the mouth of a child.

Also, the package fails to display the required warning instructing consumers not to tie a pacifier around a child's neck, which would present a strangulation hazard.

The recalled pacifiers were sold in a 4-pack of assorted colors. 'BabyTown' and model #39864 are written on the product's packaging.

They were sold at dollar stores nationwide from March 2004 through December 2007 for $1 and were made in China.

Consumers should take these pacifiers away from children immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Shims Bargain toll-free at (866) 540-3334 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.

The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

i hear that, rosieflower.

girls lets go easy on chasing amy, some of us do get to enjoy the finer things in life, and we can't begrudge her for not having to shop at dollar stores...  any way. I will keep my eyes open for other recalls that hit close to our hearts.
