Mushie & Co., a popular baby goods store, has announced a voluntary recall of its FRIGG pacifier. More than 333,000 pacifiers are being recalled because they could present a choking hazard—there have been over 200 reports concerning the pacifier's safety.
The recall notice posted on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website warns that a slit on the base of the silicone nipple of the company’s FRIGG Silicone Pacifiers can detach from its shield base and therefore create a choking hazard.
The recalled FRIGG pacifiers came in more than 40 colors and two designs – daisy silicone and classic silicone. Both designs were available in two sizes: 0–6 months and 6–18 months. The pacifiers were sold for $8 each and $15 for a pack of two from April 2021 through December 2021 on Amazon, the company's website and major retailers TJ Maxx, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Nordstrom, Olivia & Jade Company and SpearmintLOVE.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pacifiers and contact the firm for a full refund or credit,” the company said on the Mushie website.
Mushie & Co has received eight reports of the silicone nipple detaching from the plastic shield of the pacifier. In addition to those reports, the manufacturer of the pacifiers has received 200 reports from outside the U.S. of about the same issue. No injuries have been reported, thankfully.
In order to obtain a full refund, buyers should cut the silicone nipple from the base of the pacifier and send a photograph of both the detached silicone nipple and the base of the pacifier to the company at: mushie.com/pages/recalls, and dispose of the pieces into the garbage.
Consumers can contact the company at 877-687-4431 ET Monday through Friday, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
