Health Canada has recalled four styles of Munchkin Latch Lightweight Pacifier and Clips as follows:
Product Name | Item Number | UPC
Only the pacifier clips are affected, as the colour disc may detach from the metal plate of the clip, posing a choking hazard.
While Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents relating to the clips, Munchkin Inc. and Munchkin Baby Canada Inc. have received 10 reports of the discs detaching, five of which occurred in Canada, and five of which occurred in the United States. No injuries were reported.
Customers are advised to remove the clips from young children immediately and contact Munchkin to arrange for a replacement two-pack. Customers may alternatively return the product to obtain a full refund.
For further information, customers can contact Munchkin toll-free at 877-242-3134 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or via the Munchkin website or Facebook page.
From July 2014 to February 2016, approximately 16,000 pacifier clip sets were sold in Canada.
