Pacifiers recalled -- violate federal standard and pose choking risk
The last thing you want to worry about with a pacifier is that it will fall apart in your child's mouth and present a choking hazard. CPSC and OKK Trading announced a recall today of a pacifier which may do just that -- it failed federal testing when the nipple separated from the base. The violation of federal law was brought to the attention of CPSC by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection --- yet another example of the important role the states can play in product safety.
