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.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
