Sailing (U.S.) International Corp. is recalling about 8,000 flashing pacifiers with whistle necklaces.
The nipple can detach from the base, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The recalled pacifier necklace has a 28-inch multicolored cord with a 3- inch plastic pacifier that comes in assorted colors. A hole at the tip of the nipple is used as a blow hole for the whistle. The pacifier handle operates as the on-off button for the flashing light on both pacifiers. Flashing Pacifier or 2-in-1 Flashing Pacifier with Whistle Necklace is printed on the packaging of the pacifiers.
The pacifiers were sold at various retail stores nationwide during the month of June 2007 for about $5 per dozen. They were made in China.
Consumers should immediately stop using the pacifiers and return them to the store where purchased to receive a full refund or discard the pacifiers.
