Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves some Pois et Moi branded Baby Pacifier Clips, purchased between September 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.

  • The recalled Pacifier Clips consist of 12 silicone or natural wood beads on a nylon string with a pacifier or teething toy on one end and a clip on the other end, to be attached to the child’s clothing. The silicone beads were available in various sizes and colours.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to Health Canada, while opening and closing, the metal clip can break, releasing small parts that may pose a choking hazard to young children.

As of November 30, 2018, Health Canada has received one incident report involving this product. Eight Pacifier Clips were returned to the company due to broken metal clips. No injuries have been reported.

In general, if plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Baby Pacifier Clips, please do not use them nor let your child use or play with them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure pets and small children can’t access the suspect food.
