Kariño Baby Pacifiers have been recalled as they fail to meet federal safety standards. The CPSC reports that the nipple can separate from the base easily, 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.
It has been sold in independent grocery stores in California and Texas from October 2009 through March 2010 for about 25 cents. They come in pink, blue and white and have “Mygra” printed on the side of the handle. Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from children and contact distributor Antonio Flores at (619) 395-4543 for a refund or exchange.
