300,000 FRIGG Pacifiers Recalled Over Infant Choking Hazard: CPSC
A massive recall has been issued for more than 300,000 FRIGG pacifiers, following hundreds of complaints involving problems where the silicone nipple detached from the plastic shield, posing a serious choking hazard to babies.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the FRIGG pacifier recall on January 19, warning parents to immediately stop giving the recalled pacifiers to their babies, due to serious health risks.
At least 208 consumer complaints involving problems with the pacifiers have been reported, which resulted from a design defect that contains a fine slit in the silicone nipple that may allow it to detach from the base. The CPSC indicates that the silicone nipple may become lodged in the airway of an infant, potentially causing them to choke or suffocate.
The recall includes an estimated 333,725 FRIGG silicone pacifiers sold under the brand names Classic and Daisy. The Classic design contain a silicone nipple attached to a round plastic shield, and the Daisy design contains a round scalloped plastic shield.
Both designs were marketed for use for infants between zero and 6 months and six month old to 18 month old babies. The products contain the manufacturer name “FRIGG” on the handle of the pacifier and were sold in a variety of colors.
