There was a recent recall of pacifiers announced by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission that we were made aware of, and wanted to share. 

The pacifiers are called “Jaloma Pacifiers” by importer Gromex Inc. People should stop using these pacifiers immediately unless otherwise instructed.  The recall is because the pacifier mouth guard and the ventilation holes are too small and fail to meet federal safety standards.  The pacifier could pose a choking risk and aspiration hazard to young children.

Read below for details about the recall.  As a mother, it is very helpful for me to be informed of recalls directly from the CPSC.  They are sent via email and I’m alerted the same day as the recall, allowing me to learn about it as early as possible.  To sign up, you simply go to https://www.cpsc.gov/cpsclist.aspx and fill out the form.  There are several options depending on the type of products you want to be informed about.

Description:  This pacifier has a ring-shaped handle and a round-shaped mouth guard with two ventilation holes. “Jaloma” is printed on the handle side of the mouth guard and the nipple has a gel-like liquid inside.

Sold at: Retail stores in New Jersey and New York from February 2008 through March 2009 for about $1.

Manufactured in: Mexico

Remedy: Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from children and contact Gromex for a refund or exchange.
