Munchkin Latch pacifiers, clips recalled for choking hazard

- There’s an important recall that those of you with small children need to know about.

Nearly 180,000 pacifiers and clips that were sold as a set are being recalled because of a choking hazard, according to Munchkin.  The problem is the clip cover can detach from the pacifier’s clip.

The recall involves Munchkin’s Latch lightweight pacifiers and clips. They come in five varieties and several colors.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says if you have one, you “should immediately take the clip away from young children.” Then, click here to contact Munchkin for a free replacement or refund.

According to the CPSC, Munchkin has already gotten ten reports of the clip cover detaching from the pacifier clip. Luckily, no injuries were reported.

The pacifier and clip sets were sold at stores including Babies R Us, Target and Wal-Mart – and online at Amazon.com, Munchkin.com and other websites -- from March 2014 through March 2016, and they cost between $11 and $15.
