Health Canada has expanded its June 30 recall of the above pacifiers made from maple wood backs, with silicone or latex nipples in sizes 0–6 months and 6–18 months.
The recall covers all pacifiers sold at the Montreal Parents and Kids Fair in April 2015 as well as those sold online between April 2015 and July 2016.
Only personalized pacifiers engraved with a child’s name are excluded from the recall.
The handle on the pacifier may detach from the guard, posing a choking hazard. Three incidents of the knob handle detaching from the guard were reported to Health Canada and Les Produits Arboréka Inc.
Customers are advised to immediately remove the pacifiers from children. Affected pacifiers should be destroyed and put in the garbage to avoid future use. Customers are advised to cut off the nipple with scissors and smash the guard with a pair of pliers or a hammer.
For further information, customers may contact Les Produits Arboréka Inc. to obtain a replacement pacifier (toll free) at 855-545-0545, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (EST), from Monday to Friday.
From April 2015 to July 2016, approximately 6,000 pacifiers were sold in Canada.
