1.4 Million Playtex Pacifier Holders Recalled

DETROIT (WWJ) – Playtex is recalling 1.4 million pacifier holders because of concern that a small child could choke if a part of the clip broke off. The clips are used to connect a pacifier to clothing, diaper bags or strollers.

Playtex has received 99 reports of the holder cracking or breaking —but no injuries have been reported.

The plastic clips feature a figure and a “Playtex” copyright logo that slides up and down to adjust the clip, a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier. The pacifier holder was sold in green with a monkey figure, pink with a flower and blue with a tow truck.  They’re made in China.

The recall includes 1.25 million clips sold in the U.S. and 150,000 in Canada. They were sold from 2010 through October 2013 for about $3 at major retailers including Walmart, Target, Burlington Coat Factory; juvenile product, baby and discount stores nationwide and online at, from July 2010 through October 2013 for about $3 each.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifier holders away from infants and contact Playtex for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund.

Those with questions are urged to call Playtex toll-free at 888-220-2075 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Or visit and click on Recall for more information.
