Fred & Friends pacifiers with plastic moustaches recalled due to risk of baby choking

Fred & Friends is recalling 200,000 pacifiers because of the risk that a baby using one could choke.

Young children should stop using the pacifiers immediately, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday. No injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said three different pacifiers are involved in the recall. The Chill Baby Artiste Pacifier has an attached moustache and beard, which can break off. The Chill Baby Volume Control Pacifier has a volume knob that can detach and the ventilation holes are smaller than federal regulators require. The Chill Baby Panic Button Pacifier also has vent holes that are too small.

About 183,000 pacifiers are being recalled in the U.S. and 17,000 in Canada. The pacifiers were sold in department stores, toy stores, hospital and museum gift shops, and other retailers from last April through December, the CPSC said.

Fred & Friends, a unit of Garden City, N.Y.-based appliance and housewares company Lifetime Brands Inc., has received one report of the knob on the volume pacifier coming off.

Consumers can return the pacifiers for a $12 refund.
