H. Bender and Sons "Bo Bo" Rubber Pacifiers Recalled

New York, NY (SafetyAlerts) - H. Bender and Sons Inc. is recalling approximately 20,000 "Bo Bo" rubber pacifiers because they contain nitrosamines.

The rubber nipples of the recalled pacifiers contain hazardous levels of nitrosamines. Nitrosamines in pacifiers are carcinogenic and capable of being released in saliva and ingested.

The pacifiers have a plastic handle and shield with a rubber nipple. The cardboard header reads in part, "Bo Bo, Item HK-45, Hong Kong, H. Bender and Sons, Inc., NY 10010."

The pacifiers were sold in the metropolitan New York area and in Florida during the months of November and December 1989 for approximately $.50 cents each.

These hazardous pacifiers were identified during a joint CPSC/U.S. Customs Service surveillance program conducted at the Port of Newark, NJ.

Consumers who have these pacifiers should take them away from children immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. Consumers who have any questions about this recall may call H. Bender and Sons, Inc. directly at (212) 674-2247.
