VAN NUYS, Calif. (AP) – Parents are being warned to check their children’s pacifiers over a choking hazard recall.
The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled about 180,000 Munchkin-brand Latch lightweight pacifiers and clips, which are sold as a set. The commission says the clip cover can detach from the clip itself, creating a choking hazard.
Commission spokeswoman Patty Davis says Munchkin is conducting a voluntary recall in cooperation with the government.
There have been 10 reports of the clip cover coming off in the U.S. and Canada, but no injuries have been reported.
The sets were sold between March 2014 and March of this year at retailers nationwide, including Babies ‘R’ Us, Target, Wal-Mart, and Amazon.
