Parent’s Beware!

with one comment

In As I Lay You Down To Sleep I warned parents about cribs made by Jardine Enterprises.

Now the item that most babies regard as a security blanket to help them sleep and parents’ extol for its ability to render their child quiet is being recalled.

“It’s My Binky” has recalled 115,000 of its personalized pacifiers.

Although no serious injuries have been reported, the company made its decision after receiving two reports of the pacifier button, ring handle, and the shield with nipple detaching—posing a potential choking hazard for infants.

The recall affects pacifiers withJaplo imprinted on the lower part of the front cover shield. The pacifiers come in a variety of colors: blue, white and pink.

The pacifiers are also unique because of the various designs and words printed on the button. Parents can use the following link for a complete listing of the symbols and text printed on the Recalled Japlo Pacifiers.

The pacifiers were sold at Nordstrom and baby boutique retail stores and online at www.itsmybinky.com. The affected pacifiers were sold from February 2006 through June 2008 and retailed between $5 and $6.

Parents should immediately desist in their use of these pacifiers and return them to the store where purchased. For online purchases, contact the company at once for a free pacifier replacement.

Additional information can be obtained by contacting It’s MY Binky toll-free number at 888-689-9444, Monday thru Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Pacific Time (P.T.)

The company’s website can also be visited at www.itsmybinky.com or consumers can choose to email Danielle Ribber atDanielle@itsmybinky.com

Parents and friends of parents don’t procrastinate. Spread the word about these recalled pacifiers.

If not, the child that you lay down with one of these defective pacifiers—may never awaken from their sleep.
