More than 1.2 million pacifier clips are being recalled after reports were received by the manufacturer where the holders broke into small pieces, posing a choking hazard to small children.  

The Playtex pacifier holder clips recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on January 22, following at least 99 reports of the clips breaking or cracking into small pieces.

Although no reports of injuries have been linked to the recalled pacifier clips, this may pose a serious risk for young children, who may choke on the pieces.

The products have a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier. The pacifiers were manufactured in blue with a tow truck, green with a monkey figure, and pink with a flower design.

The affected pacifiers were manufactured in China under Playtex Products Inc., of Dover, Delaware where they were sold at Walmart, Target, Burlington Coat Factory, various juvenile and baby discount stores nationwide as well as on from July 2010 through October 2013 for roughly $3.
