Healthtex Recalls 40,000 Zoo Pacifiers
Healthtex has recalled about 40,000 Zoo Pacifiers. The nipples can separate from the base, posing a choking hazard.
This recall involves Zoo pacifiers with animal cartoon figures as handles. The pacifier has a round-shaped mouth guard with three ventilation holes. "Made in Spain" is printed on the handle side of the mouth guard and "Mi Tosoro" is printed on the cardboard packaging. The pacifiers were made in Spain and sold at supermarkets and pharmacy stores nationwide from December 2002 through March 2009 for about $1.40.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from children and contact Healthtex for a refund or exchange. For additional information, contact Healthtex toll-free at (866) 348-5080 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
