Munchkin, an infant and child product company, has begun a voluntary recall of three of its ‘Latch’ pacifiers. These Munchkin pacifiers come with a small latch that can be attached to your child’s clothes to keep it near their mouth. It has been discovered that the epoxy coating on the clip of the pacifier can weaken and detach over time, creating a choking hazard. Munchkin has issued a pacifier recall, effective immediately.
There have been no injuries to date, but the pacifiers are being recalled to keep consumers safe. 3 models are affected by the pacifier recall, MKFE0391, MKFE0392, and MKFE0393. The model numbers can be found on the label sewn into the strap attaching the pacific to the latch. Munchkin is urging consumers to stop using these pacifiers immediately and contact Munchkin as soon as possible.
Consumers who have purchased the Latch Pacifier can either receive a 2 pack of Latch Lightweight Pacifiers or a full refund for their purchase of the original Latch Pacifier. The pacifiers were originally sold at mass merchandisers such as Babies R Us, Target, and Walmart.
10 reports have been received of the clip cover detaching from the Munchkin Latch Pacifier’s clip. Although no one has been injured yet, the company would prefer to act in caution to recall all products with the potential for injury.
