Dive equipment stores nationwide from July 2009 through May 2013 for between $70 and $90.
The pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards. The beard on the Artiste and the knob on the Volume pacifiers can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. In addition, the ventilation holes on the Volume and Panic pacifier guards are too small.
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.
Fred & Friends has received one report of the knob on the Volume pacifier detaching. No injuries have been reported.
