WASHINGTON, DC -- Evenflo Products Company, Ravenna, OH and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today the recall of all Evenflo pacifiers decorated with Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Mickey Mouse, or Minnie Mouse characters. In some instances, the characters can separate from the pacifier and present a choking hazard.

Evenflo sold the pacifiers between December 1990 and July 1991. The pacifiers retailed for $2.00 to $3.00.

Evenflo has sent letters to all distributors, retailers, and wholesalers of these pacifiers ordering their immediate recall. Additionally, retailers will be asked to display warning posters informing purchasers that the product has been recalled. If a consumer has an Evenflo pacifier with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, or Daisy Duck character attached to it, the pacifier is part of this recall.

Consumers having a pacifier decorated with one of these figures should discontinue use and mail the pacifier to Evenflo Products Company, P.O. Box 1206, Ravenna, OH 44266-1206 and request replacement or refund. Customers may contact Evenflo at 1-800-356-2229 or at 1-800-233-2229 (Ohio residents).

Evenflo is coordinating this recall with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The Commission is announcing this recall as part of its mission to protect the public. The Commission's objective is to help reduce injuries associated with consumer products within CPSC's jurisdiction.
