About 45,000 BabyTown pacifiers imported by Shims Bargain Inc. are being recalled because they pose safety dangers to infants, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The recall applies to pacifiers sold in packages of four with the model number #39864.
The CPSC warns the pacifier shield is too small, the ventilation holes are too small and not properly placed, and the package does not warn parents against tying a pacifier around a child's neck.
No associated incidents or injuries have been reported.
The pacifiers were sold in U.S. stores from March 2004 through December 2007 for about $1 US each.
Caregivers should take pacifiers away from children and return them to the stores for a refund.
