Have You Seen These Dangerous-to-Baby Items in Any Shreveport Stores?
More than 300,000 baby pacifiers made by the FRIGG company have been ordered off the shelves of American stores. In a release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the silicone pacifiers have been declared a choking hazard and a recall of the products has been ordered.
What Went Wrong?
According to the Commission, there have been approximately 200 reports of the nipple piece coming off of the pacifier shield. Though that small piece has been determined to be potentially dangerous, no injuries have been reported.
What Does the Manufacturer Say?
The FRIGG pacifiers, which come in more than 40 colors, designs and sizes, were sold at TJ Maxx, Amazon and various stores from April to December of last year.
The company, which says it will fully comply with the recall, urges customers who purchased the pacifiers to stop using them immediately.
What To Do If You Have One
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pacifiers and contact the firm for a full refund or credit. To obtain a full refund or credit, consumers should cut the silicone nipple from the base of the pacifier and send a photograph of both the detached silicone nipple and the base of the pacifier to Mushie & Co. Consumers should then properly dispose of the pacifier by placing both pieces into the garbage.

Maker Admits They Have a Problem
On their site the company addresses the problems, saying they have received eight reports of the nipple detaching from the pacifier shield. In addition, the manufacturer confirms that they have received about 200 reports from outside the United States.
