A novelty soother manufactured for adults has been recalled because of the danger it poses to infants.
Top Goods Trading has voluntarily recalled a flashing pacifier meant as a novelty item for older children and adults because it does not comply with federal safety standards.
If the product were given to a baby, it could cause serious injury or death, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a press release.
The pieces of the pacifier can separate and pose a choking hazard, while the necklace it is attached to poses a strangulation risk, the advisory said.
About 38,000 of the toys having been sold at stores in the Los Angeles area since November 2007.
Consumers with the product are being asked to contact Top Goods for a refund.
