Date: 
January 30, 2014
Brand: 
Fred & Friends
Sold At: 

Dive equipment stores nationwide from July 2009 through May 2013 for between $70 and $90.

Product Numbers Recalled: 
About 183,000 in the United States and 17,000 in Canada
If You Own This Product: 

Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from young children and return them to Fred & Friends for a $12 refund. Fred & Friends is providing a postage paid envelope for consumers to return the recalled pacifiers.
