About Milk Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” like milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

Direct: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1046430

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the recalled Pacifiers do not comply with the requirements of Australia’s Consumer Protection Notice No.4 2006. Specifically, the Pacifier does not have a ring or handle, the dummies are packaged with a strap (in error) and the packaging is not marked with the following statement as required by law:

WARNING
DO NOT TIE SOOTHER AROUND BABY’S NECK
AS IT PRESENTS A STRANGULATION DANGER.

In addition, ACCC says the lack of a ring or handle on the Pacifier may pose a choking hazard to the child: a parent or guardian may not realise the danger posed by attaching a soother to the baby’s neck.

Never wrap a Pacifier tether or cord around the neck of a child or attach a Pacifier using a tether or cord near the neck of a child due to choking and/or death hazards!

About Nut Allergies:
For some people, groundnuts and tree nuts are a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to peanuts or other nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
