Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves three styles of Fred & Friends Chill Baby Pacifiers, including the Artiste model with a black plastic beard and mustache, Volume model with a black volume control knob and Panic model with a red panic button. The Pacifier’s name and UPC are printed on the packaging.

The Artiste’s UPC is 728987021282, the Volume model’s UPC is 728987020599 and the Panic model’s UPC is 728987020605. The Pacifiers are plastic and silicone rubber and measure about 2 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches tall.

According to the CPSC, the recalled Pacifiers fail to meet federal safety standards. The beard on the Artiste model and the knob on the Volume Pacifiers can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. In addition, the ventilation holes on the Volume and Panic Pacifiers guards are too small. Fred & Friends has received one report of the knob on the Volume pacifier detaching. No injuries have been reported.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).
