WASHINGTON, DC - In cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Dan Brechner & Co., Inc., of Floral Park, New York, today announced a voluntary recall of CHUPETE AND BABY brand Pacifiers Nos. 985-060 and 969-644, because of a potential choking hazard. When these pacifiers were tested for compliance with the CPSC safety requirements, the nipples separated. The separated nipples could present a choking hazard. Neither Dan Brechner & Co., Inc., nor the CPSC know of any injuries or deaths associated with these pacifiers.

The involved pacifiers have a brown rubber nipple attached to a round plastic shield, which is white, pink, blue or red. The packages are labeled with the Style No. 985-060 or 969-644. The articles were made in Hong Kong.

Dan Brechner & Co., Inc, imported approximately 360,000 of these pacifiers from Hong Kong and distributed them between March 1984 and July 1985 in Puerto Rico. The pacifiers were sold for less than $1.00.

Consumers should stop using these pacifiers immediately return them to the retailer where they were purchased for a full refund.

Anyone wishing additional information may call Dan Brechner & Co., Inc. at 1-516-437-8400.
