Handi-Craft, the manufacturer of Dr. Brown’s baby products, is recalling 600,000 Pacifiers and Teething Holders due to a choking hazard.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has received 67 reports of the snap detaching from the pacifier’s ribbon, causing a potential choking hazard.
The recall involves Dr. Brown’s Lovey pacifiers and teether products.
How to know if your pacifier or teething holder has been recalled
