The U.S. CPSC announced a voluntary recall of Kariño Baby Pacifiers. Consumers should stop using the pacifiers immediately because the nipple can separate from the base easily. In addition, the pacifier handle is too long, the mouth guard is too small and there are no ventilation holes on the mouth guard. The pacifier could pose a choking and aspiration hazard to young children. The pacifiers were made in Mexico. About 44,900 pacifiers were distributed by Antonio Flores, of San Ysidro, Calif and sold at independent grocery stores in California and Texas from October 2009 through March 2010.
“Kariño” is printed on the handle side of the mouth guard, and “Mygra” is printed on one side of the handle. The nipple is filled with corn syrup.
