Company recalls 180K pacifiers due to choking hazard
Van Nuys, Calif. — About 180,000 pacifiers have been recalled due to a choking hazard.
The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall involves Munchkin-brand Latch lightweight pacifiers and clips, which are sold as a set. The commission says the clip cover can detach from the clip itself, creating a choking hazard.
Commission spokeswoman Patty Davis says Munchkin is conducting a voluntary recall in cooperation with the government.
There have been 10 reports of the clip cover coming off in the U.S. and Canada, but no injuries have been reported.
The sets were sold between March 2014 and March of this year at retailers nationwide, including Babies ‘R’ Us, Target, Wal-Mart and Amazon.
