Release # 90-046

 

WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Baby Needs, Inc., Burlington, North Carolina is voluntarily recalling approximately 25,000 pacifier holders because the safety pin for attaching the holder to the child's garment could open and injure the child.

The pacifier holder being recalled is a two-inch brown plastic teddy bear figure having two ribbons with snaps at each end for attaching a pacifier. On the back of the holder is a safety pin. The package in which the pacifier holder is marketed is labeled in part: "Grow Time, Holder For: Pacifier-Teether Rattle, Interchangeable Ribbon, Item #GT1026, ...Taiwan...".

The pacifier holders were sold nationwide during 1989 for about $1.99 each.

Neither the CPSC nor Baby Needs, Inc. is aware of any injuries involving this pacifier holder.

Consumers having these pacifier holders should immediately take them away from children and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. Consumers may also return their pacifier holders to Cutoy Cooperative Association, P.O. Box 2197, Burlington, NC 27216.

Consumers who have any questions about this recall may contact Baby Needs, Inc., at (919) 227-6202.
