Recalls Pacifiers Sold at Bath & Body Works
Fort Lauderdale, FL (SafetyAlerts) - Atico International USA
Inc. is recalling approximately 13,000 pacifiers, sold both as part of a diaper bag gift
set and individually as a pacifier with clip. The nipples on these pacifiers could
separate from the base, posing a choking hazard to children.
CPSC and Atico are not aware of any injuries involving these pacifiers. This recall is
being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.
The pacifiers have an off-white plastic, oblong shield with a ring handle. The diaper bag
gift set included a pacifier, a baby bottle and changing pad. Writing on the side of the
diaper bag read, "Doody Bag." The pacifier with clip has a circular moss-green
plastic clip which is designed to attach to a child's clothing. The clip has a
mauve-colored ribbon designed to attach to the pacifier. The words, "Plug me in &
enjoy the silence" are written on the clip.
Bath & Body Works stores nationwide sold the pacifiers in the gift set and the
pacifier with clip between June 1998 and September 1998. The diaper bag gift set sold for
about $28 and the pacifier with clip sold for about $4.
Consumers should stop using the recalled pacifiers immediately, and return them to a Bath
& Body Works store for a refund and a $25 gift certificate. For more information,
