Rashti & Rashti Announces Recall of Pacifier Clips

Pacifier holder recalledNew York, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Rashti & Rashti Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 12,700 pacifier clips. The metal clip and the small rivet that attaches the clip to a small, stuffed animal on the pacifier holder can break apart easily, exposing babies to small parts.

Rashti & Rashti received one report of a pacifier clip breaking apart. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled Magic Years® Novelty Pacifier Buddy Clips were sold individually, and also as part of a set with a matching bib. The pacifier clip has a small, stuffed animal attached -- including a purple cat, yellow chick, blue dog, pink bunny, green bear and white sheep. The bib sold with the bib set has a large, sewn-on animal patch that matches the design of the pacifier animal.The clips and bib/clip sets are packaged on a yellow cardboard hangtag. "Magic Years®" and "PACIFIER CLIP" are written on the individual clip packaging. "Magic Years,®" "Novelty bib and pacifier clip set" and "ALL ITEMS MADE IN CHINA" are written on the bib/clip set packaging. There is no writing on the pacifier clips or bibs.

Gift and specialty stores sold the pacifier clips from September 1999 through June 2000. The pacifier clips sold individually for about $3, and the bib/pacifier clip sets sold for about $5.

Consumers should take these pacifier clips away from babies immediately, and call Rashti & Rashti at (800) 4-RASHTI between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for information on receiving a refund.
