What is the danger?

Health Canada's testing requires that, after pacifiers are boiled, they do not come apart when they are pulled on.

Testing by Health Canada has determined that the nipples of the recalled pacifiers may separate; these small components pose a choking hazard to young children.

At time of the recall Health Canada has received one complaint about the pacifier separating, with no reported injuries.

What should I do?

You need to take the recalled pacifiers away from your children and return them to the place where they were purchased to receive a full refund or exchange.
