Gromex pacifiers recalled over choking hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Jaloma name-brand pacifiers imported by Gromex Inc., of Passaic, N.J., due to a choking hazard.

This pacifier has a ring-shaped handle and a round-shaped mouth guard with two ventilation holes. “Jaloma” is printed on the handle side of the mouth guard and the nipple has a gel-like liquid inside.

The pacifier mouth guard and the ventilation holes are too small and fail to meet federal safety standards. The pacifier could pose a choking and aspiration hazard to young children.

About 700 pacifiers were sold at retail stores in New Jersey and New York from February 2008 through March 2009 for about $1 US each.

Consumers should immediately take the pacifiers away from children and contact Gromex for a refund or exchange.
